Helping us to care for carers

Without a dedicated team of volunteers Support For Carers would be unable to provide a much needed break to those who are supporting someone within their own home. Volunteers freely give their time, skills and experience to help support the many carers within the Scarborough district.

As the number of carers continues to grow we need the help of volunteers more now than ever, particularly in the areas of our work shown below.

• Volunteer visitors

• Coffee Clubs - helpers

• Wednesday Friendship Club - helpers

• Songs and Scones - helpers and drivers - (the last Thursday of each month)

Without volunteers we would struggle to provide the level of support that all carers increasingly need. Being a carer can be a lonely place to be, and talking to others who understand how that feels is immensely helpful and reassuring. Just a couple of hours a week or fortnight on a day and time to suit YOU can make all the difference.

Here at Support For Carers we realise not everyone wants to volunteer on their own, we welcome couples or those in pairs to come forward.

All our volunteers go through a recruitment process which includes references and police checks followed by induction training.
