Weekend Care is looking for weekend volunteers

weekend careWeekend Care is a local charity which provides day care at weekends for Calderdale residents aged 50 or over, including transport provision, a two-course meal, refreshments throughout the day, day trips, events and entertainment.

The service is mainly staffed by fully trained volunteers and we are currently looking for more helpers:

  • Maybe you can be a volunteer driver or escort?
  • Maybe you have a talent or ability that you would like to share with our guests?
  • Or maybe you would like to come along and help, with your meal and refreshments provided?

Weekend Care will pay for all training and out-of-pocket expenses will be reimbursed.

To discuss our current volunteering opportunities, please contact Melanie on 07548 249813 or email melanie.rumble@cvac.org.uk

Weekend Care – Mayor of Calderdale’s Charity of the Year 2014

Registered Charity no. 1124280

If you feel this service may be of use to yourself or others, please get in touch – registration and booking are required.

We take referrals from individuals, GPs, Health Professionals, Social Services and Families or Carers, and also provide respite for carers, who can bring their cared-for to our centre and then have a day to themselves.

Our fully trained volunteers will welcome you to informal gatherings at Higgins Close Day Centre in Halifax for £5 per day (or £10 if you require transport).
