Volunteer for Us
The Club relies heavily on the services of a group of talented volunteers for its smooth running. The volunteers are responsible to the Manager.
Volunteers should be self-motivated and soon be able to work with a minimum of supervision. The Phoenix Stroke Club will check references.
If you are interested in applying you should contact the Manager to arrange an interview, fill out and email an application form.
The Club meets on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday except during public holidays. The "Monday", "Tuesday" and the "Wednesday" meetings are assisted by essentially different groups of volunteers. So a volunteer who wants to help with meetings need as a minimum make a commitment for only one day a week initially. There are many jobs that do not need a weekly commitment, e.g. building maintenance and gardening.
Anyone interested in working, on a one-to-one basis, with someone who has communication difficulties arising from a stroke could volunteer to help on a Thursday morning in the Supported Communicaton Group.
The following is a list of tasks for which voluntary help is required:
- Gardening and general maintenance
- Lunch cook/chef
- Kitchen Assistant
- Activity helper
Volunteers should be self-motivated and soon be able to work with a minimum of supervision. The Phoenix Stroke Club will check references and all volunteers are subject to DBS checks.
