Paul's Cancer Support Centre: Recruitment for volunteer practitioners - London
Are you a qualified Massage Therapist or Reflexologist who is able to offer a few hours a week to share your valuable skills as a volunteer with our Home Visiting team?
Paul’s Cancer Support Centre is a Wandsworth-based charity which offers information, support, complementary therapies and self-help approaches for people with cancer, their relatives and friends.
The Home Visiting Service (HVS) offers reflexology, massage, counselling and befriending to those who are too unwell or frail to come in to the Centre because they are undergoing treatment or receiving palliative care.
The HVS is offered to carers who are unable to leave the house for any length of time.
Although Wandsworth-based the HVS takes referrals from surrounding Boroughs through hospitals, GP’s and self referrals.
The Home Visiting Service has volunteers from across London; in particular, South West, South East and central London.
Due to the increasing level of referrals, the HVS is recruiting new volunteers, including qualified massage therapists and reflexologists.
We offer a comprehensive training for volunteers before they start home visiting and supervision and support once practitioners are visiting clients.
The next training starts in February 2013: There is an Open evening on Wednesday 9th January, which is an opportunity to meet the Home Visiting team and some of the volunteers.
For an information pack, including an application form, please contact Ruth Wooldridge, HVS manager or Clare Unwin, HVS administrator via firstname.lastname@example.org or the Centre phone number- 0207 924 3924
