We are now looking for volunteer HCAs to support our Zest Group primarily at weekends for Short Breaks, but potentially for our Zest days and X-Change Group as well.

Our volunteer HCAs will work under the direction of a supervisor/mentor from the nursing team to provide assistance with the care, hygiene, toileting, nutrition, mobilisation, rest and comfort needs of patients, enabling and promoting patients independence where appropriate

All volunteers will receive training to support them in their role.
