Volunteer Group Co-ordinator

*Opportunities in the following areas: Whitby, York, Ryedale, Skipton, Ripon and Harrogate

Group Coordinators range from people in their 20s to people in their 80s. Some work, some don’t and they have a wonderful and diverse range of backgrounds and skills. What they all have is the determination to make sure that the older people in their community can get together in social groups.

Our team does all the recruitment of older guests and volunteers but it is the Group Coordinators who plan the monthly meet-ups and ensure that they run smoothly with every older guest picked up and taken home and a host lined up for every month.

All Group Coordinators are allocated to one of our nation-wide team of Support Officers who are there to give support and advice.

We require a criminal record check and two references from our Group Coordinators.
