Engage Volunteer

Supporting people with additional needs

You may be supporting people with additional needs. You may also be supporting people who are receiving end of life care, and we appreciate this could be upsetting.

Your onsite contact will brief you at the start of your shift to make you aware of any information you need to know about who you are supporting. You can ask them any questions you might have about how best to support the individual(s) you will be working with at that shift.

Please read the other sources of information section of this guide for guidance on supporting a person living with dementia and supporting a person living with poor mental health which may help you in this role.
