Get a free ticket to a great festival, fundraise for Child.org, and develop your professional and interpersonal skills. Become a Charity Concierge.



 



In 2020, Charity Concierge are thrilled to be taking teams of volunteers to Download, Camp Bestival, Latitude and Electric Picnic. Depending on the festival, you can volunteer on:



 




  • The Charity Concierge buggy service. Working as either a buggy driver or taxi ground crew member, you make sure festival-goers can hitch a lift from point A to point B and get where they need to go a little easier. At some festivals, we run the buggy service exclusively for the access campsite to make sure everyone can enjoy the festival as much as possible.

  • The Charity Concierge fast-track drinks service. The nomads of the arena, our general services volunteers take drinks orders from festival-goers, collect them using our fast-track lane at the bar, and deliver them to their customers. It's the service we've all wanted at a festival - to get more drinks and be able to keep our spot in the crowd - and our volunteers are the heroes that deliver it.

  • Tent pitching. A smaller part of the volunteer role, but just as vital. Charity Concierges (provided with a little bit of training) jump in to rescue festival-goers tied up in a tent pretzel (or the grips of desperation).



 



In addition to a free ticket to the festival, you will get plenty of time off to enjoy yourself. You can sign up as an individual and meet other brilliant volunteers on site, or sign up as a group with friends and family. And the best part? All of the donations earned through your hard work will go directly to Child.org, an innovative international development charity pioneering novel global health initiatives and working with mums and children in Kenya and Sierra Leone to improve the health of children in places it's most needed. Plus, you'll get the opportunity to list a unique volunteer experience on your CV and develop skills in communication, teamwork, sales, fundraising, and problem-solving. We even offer team leader positions for anyone looking to gain some leadership experience!

Yorkshire MESMAC will allocate a suitably trained person to carry out supervision of Community Testing Volunteers. This will be in addition to pre and post session briefings and debriefs facilitated by the session lead worker. A quarterly group meeting will also be held to provide peer supervision however supervision can take place at any time.





Yorkshire MESMAC offers a wide range of training for all volunteers and all volunteers will have the opportunity to access training on specialised subjects such as male child sex exploitation.





All Community Testing Volunteers are encouraged to attend training sessions through-out their time as a volunteer.

The Lighthouse at Spurn has undergone a major restoration project during 2015 and is now a Heritage must see for visitors to the area. The Lighthouse tells the story of Spurn through beautifully crafted interpretation story boards and also has a fabulous audio visual experience for visitors to enjoy. The story of Spurn spans across five floors and will enable visitors to get a glimpse into the past of this unique place; the journey concludes at the top of lighthouse where visitors will get a chance to see what Spurn is like from the top of the Lighthouse. We are looking for volunteers who can help bring the story of Spurn to life while our visitors are taking a look around. 



 



What will the volunteer be doing? 



You will inspire and interact with our visitors while they are in the Lighthouse by bringing the story of Spurn to life through talking to them and sharing knowledge about the history and changing landscape that is Spurn today.



You will move around the floors of the Lighthouse and be on hand to answer any questions visitors may have and monitor numbers. Part of this role will be to collect entrance fees so you must be happy with handling money and welcoming visitors.



Making sure visitors are well informed about potential hazards of tides and weather are also a key part of this role, plus keeping the Lighthouse free any of litter that could be a fire hazard.



Volunteers will be required to attend a formal induction and essential training prior to their stay and once volunteering will be expected to commit to at least 1 week to access the free accommodation. We anticipate a closing date of August 11th for applications to this opportunity.

Macmillan Dementia Support Volunteer
Number of volunteer places available
{places_amount}
Tasks

People who have dementia may experience a wide range of symptoms.  These include memory loss (including not recognising close family members), difficulty communicating, confusion and in some cases, agitation and aggression.  These symptoms usually get gradually worse and may last for years and, in most cases, cannot be treated.



 



The family and carers of people with dementia often find the experience physically exhausting, and often have to deal with complicated feelings and emotions.



 



Dementia support volunteers provide support for people suffering from dementia.  This will include providing support to enable their carer to take time out from their caring role.   Due to the vulnerability of people with dementia, and the confusion many experience, dementia support volunteers will regularly work with the same family for a period of time, to allow them to develop strong and  trusting relationships with the service users.



 



Responsibilities



•           Visit people with dementia in their own homes, and stay with them whilst their carers go out



•           Offer companionship and support to the person with dementia and their carers



•           Arrange appropriate activities for the person with dementia



•           Help with making memory boxes or recording/writing down memories or reminiscences



•           With support and training, provide basic therapies such as Cognitive Stimulation Therapy



•           Identify any immediate difficulties which could be referred on to the appropriate service for help and support



•           Report any worries or problems to the Volunteer Coordinator and/or Volunteer Buddy



•           Complete routine administration records after contact and within set timescales.

General overview:



Visitors’ centres exist to meet the needs of adults and children visiting relatives or friends in in prison and immigration removal centres. Prison Service Guidelines state that they aim to offer "a safe, pleasant environment where all visitors are met with dignity and respect, provided with the facilities they need, and offered information, support and the opportunity to discuss the difficulties they may face in confidence”. This statement is reflective of the visitors’ centres that Lincolnshire Action Trust runs.

They will offer emotional support to the families who are waiting for a visit, providing information and answering questions when required.



 



Main tasks will include:




  • Welcoming and talking to visitors as they arrive

  • Ensuring new visitors are able to understand visiting processes

  • Assisting staff with booking visitors in and ensuring everyone adheres to prison regulations

  • Providing information and support as necessary to the families of prisoners or detainees

  • Respecting confidentiality and acting courteously at all times

  • Possibly serving refreshments or assisting visitors with food and drink orders

By giving them information they want and need, we can equip them with facts to make informed lifestyle choices and help shed taboos about cancer. We can also ensure they are able to cope when cancer affects them – whether they are diagnosed themselves, or if a friend or family member gets cancer.



 



We need your help to raise more income and reach more people so that we can provide Macmillan’s vital services to everyone who needs us.



 



 



- putting up posters and leaflets promoting our largest national fundraising event



- leading on getting a group of students together to organise your own coffee morning within your place of education



- distributing Macmillan collection tins where possible



- organising your own fundraising events throughout the year



- raising awareness of Macmillan and growing support for our work by talking about what cancer is and how Macmillan can help in your assemblies, student council meetings or within your student union meetings



- putting posters and leaflets up in your building to promote keeping healthy



- asking teachers, lecturers and students to become campaigners by having a campaign sign up day.



 



The experience and skills you can obtain by taking on this role:



•           meeting and working with new people



•           learning new skills which would benefit future applications to further education, volunteering roles or employment whilst having fun



•           a reference and invaluable experience for your CV

Volunteers in this role will therefore act as a mentor to an individual over a period of time, working one-to-one with them in the community. They will provide regular feedback of any activities undertaken, adhering to LAT’s safeguarding procedures. Mentoring operates across multiple projects within LAT.



 



Main tasks will include:




  • Working closely with an individual to achieve their desired goals

  • Meeting regularly to undertake various activities with the individual

  • Providing verbal and written feedback of activities

  • Communicating information effectively to aid multi-agency working and reporting

  • Respecting confidentiality and acting professionally at all times

  • Adhering to professional boundaries throughout the mentoring relationship

  • Providing emotional and practical support
