Volunteer Support Workers are based in our Independence & Wellbeing Centre (IWC). They support service users to re-learn lost skills and regain confidence. Our volunteers support service users to engage with other people, as well as getting involved in group activities and life skills sessions. The IWC focuses on increasing independence and helping people to move on to the next stage in their recovery.
The IWC is based at Rookwood Hospital and is open Monday – Friday.
Social Group Volunteers spend time with service users on a one-to-one basis and provide a listening ear. They help encourage group interaction and sometimes facilitate games and activities. Our Social Groups help reduce the isolation, provide peer-to-peer support and help service users reintegrate into the wider community.
Our current Social Group is at Chapter Arts Centre every Thursday.
Activities Group Volunteers will support service users participate in walking and cycling, as well as facilitating conversation and providing a listening ear. Our Activities Group gives our service users the opportunity to enjoy a healthy outdoors activity whilst benefiting from peer-to-peer support.
Our Activities Group meets at Pedal Power in Pontcanna Fields every Tuesday.
