The New Apton Centre is a facility that challenges the isolation that faces many of our older community in Bishop's Stortford and the surrounding area, by providing opportunities in which anyone of the age of over 55 within our community can reconnect with others, have a chat or try a new activity on a regular basis.However, we simply couldn't manage to deliver all of our services without the contribution of our volunteers' skills, knowledge, time and commitment. All volunteers are given appropriate training and have the support and guidance of managers and colleagues.

Currently, we are looking for people to help out in our day centres for older people. You can help out one or more days a week. Our centre is open Monday, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.

You need to be willing to help organise activities, serve lunch, make tea/coffee and help wash up. You don't have to do all of these things; the most important thing is to be sociable and willing to chat with the older people attending the day centre.

You must be able to get to our centre which is in Bishop's Stortford

We are committed to the safety of our staff and service users, and are aware that many of the people we serve are potentially vulnerable. For some volunteering roles it may be necessary for an application to be made for disclosure of any information held on police records by the DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service).

What skills do I need?

Training can be provided. However, we are particularly interested to hear from you if you have some background in a caring or nursing role.
