Give a little, gain a lot – befriending with Quarriers
Gain new experiences and learn new skills. Build confidence and gain a sense of achievement. Improve physical and mental health wellbeing. Access free training and development. Add to your CV. Try something new and meet new people. Have fun!
Quarriers has two exciting befriending opportunities available – if you would like to make a difference in somebody’s life then one of these roles could be for you:
Support a young man to enjoy activities such as cycling, playing football, going to the gym, or enjoying a coffee together. This will provide the young man with independence, increased exercise, activity and enjoyment.
The young man would love you to support him to volunteer too. For example, light gardening tasks or litter picking as he is very enthusiastic and loves to be active.
No qualification or experience required. The volunteer only needs to be patient, empathetic, a good listener, and enjoy a laugh!
Support a young woman who has a mild learning disability and epilepsy, within independent living in Quarriers Village, Bridge of Weir.
If you are aged 35-55 and enjoy cooking, baking and social activities then this volunteer role is for you! We hope as the relationship develops you would support the young woman to go to trampolining, to the cinema and other social activities. This will allow her to enjoy her favourite activities with someone who shares her interests.
No qualification or experience required. You should have a keen interest in cooking and baking and be able to follow a recipe book. Chatty, down to earth with a good sense of humour!
All relevant training will be provided along with a named staff member to provide introduction, supervision and support.
We give our volunteers a sense of family, together transforming the lives of the vulnerable people we care for and support.
