Volunteer Group Leader
We run 20 regular groups across Southwark in community settings covering gentle exercise, yoga, reminiscence and more. We are seeking additional volunteer leaders to service our existing groups and to enable us to expand the number of groups we run across Southwark.
We are looking for dedicated volunteers who are reliable and friendly to facilitate activity groups, predominately exercise groups. Where relevant we provide professional tutors. The role will involve, setting up chairs/tables, making refreshments, meeting and greeting, recording attendance, taking £1 contributions (where applicable) and enjoying the company of others. It's a great way to meet people and get involved with your community. Having our groups run by volunteers means we can offer these at minimal cost to Southwark residents over 60. The groups are a great way for older people to meet people, make new friends and take part in activities.
If you also have a skill or talent you would like to share on a weekly or fortnightly basis with a group, please do also get in touch, we would welcome hearing from you.
We welcome volunteers who are willing to make a regular commitment for a minimum of 6 months and undergo screening and training. The group session times are usually anywhere from 1 hour to 2 hours in length. The volunteer will need to arrive before the group session to set the room up and stay after the session has finished to tidy up. We provide pre-approved expenses.
