Christmas and New Year Volunteer

Laura Fergusson Rehabilitation (LFR) specialises in the care and rehabilitation of clients who have experienced a neurological or physical injury or are experiencing the symptoms of a deteriorating neurological disease. Our aim is to promote as much function and independence as possible, while at the same time facilitating adjustment to disability, promoting self-determination and valuing quality of life.

During the Christmas and New Year period, a collection of on-site and off-site activities are organised for clients. Activities can include going Christmas shopping, visiting the museum, cinemas, local gardens, cafes, attending theatre shows or having arts and crafts and games on-site.

Christmas and New Year Volunteers provide support to staff and clients over the holiday period by accompanying clients around off-site venues, assisting clients with activities and acting an extra pair of eyes, ensuring everyone is accounted for. Volunteers additionally assist staff on-site by leading small groups of clients through the day’s chosen activity.

For off-site activities, five to seven clients attend the outing, along with trained staff members.

LFR will provide transport to all off-site activities and cover venue entrance fees.

Our clients range from 16 to 64 years old, with the majority being over 40.

Requirements
  • Due to the interaction with clients, volunteers need a polite, caring nature and the ability to engage with others
  • For this role, we welcome volunteers from 17 years upwards
