Royal Voluntary Service Good Neighbours

Register your Interest

Are you a good listener? Do you like meeting people and talking to them about their lives? We need volunteers to meet with a range of people and help them explore what support would make the best difference to their lives.

First Visit Volunteers meet with individuals and their families/carers to find how Royal Voluntary Service can provide the practical support they need to help them live the life they want. This will involve identifying what activities, support and services they need to achieve these outcomes.

As a First Visit Volunteer you act as a catalyst, initiating the first steps a person can take to reducing their isolation and building connections with their local community. Your role will involve elements of lone working and building a relationship with those you visit.

You will receive relevant training for your role and will be welcomed and supported by a friendly local team.
