Getting You Started Guide
As an Engage volunteer you will support people to engage with staff led activities in their place of residence which could include sheltered or supported accommodation, care, residential or respite homes.
This support will allow people to take part in a range of activities and increase interaction with others, especially where they may not have visiting relatives or friends.
The volunteer support for this activity is available as shift-based tasks, this means you can select any shifts you are available for via the GoodSAM app.
You will support a range of people in diverse communities, and we ask that make sure everyone feels supported, welcomed and valued for who they are.
Further information on how you can support people with accessibility needs and learn about different backgrounds and communities can be found in our Inclusion Hub.
