Service summary

The Volunteering Matters Choices offers independent living support through full-time volunteers, usually on a live-in basis.

Further information

Our Choices programme offers independent living support to a wide range of people, including people with disabilities and learning difficulties, older people and families.

We provide Full Time Volunteers who are available for support with a wide range of tasks, including personal care, domestic tasks, companionship, and accessing the community. Our volunteers are aged 18-35 and each one commits to volunteering 35 hours per week for between 6 months and a year. Volunteering Matters provides ongoing recruitment and support to all service users.

Client groups

We assess potential service users on a case by case basis. We usually work with individuals with support needs totalling 35 hours per week or more. Our volunteers can be a helpful option for many individuals and families, but they are not an appropriate choice in all circumstances, e.g where 24 hour nursing care is required, or medical conditions are serious and advanced.
