Genesis has appointed Richard Sharp to help residents find their ideal volunteering opportunities.
There are many reasons for volunteering, including:
With the wide variety of volunteering opportunities that are available today, there is bound to be something for everyone.
Richard said: “I see my role as a broker, where residents can identify what they are interested in. After listening to what people are interested in, I then act on their behalf looking for a placement that suits them. It doesn’t matter what areas residents say they would like to volunteer in, I am confident that in most cases, a placement can be found that’s worthwhile for them.
At the moment a lot of people are chasing the same jobs and it’s pretty tough out there. A volunteering placement could therefore provide the extra edge in a job interview. Alternatively, older people may see volunteering as a good way of getting out of the house and taking part in an activity where they meet other people and do something useful”.
There are a number of exciting and challenging volunteering placements within Genesis that you can apply for. There will be new volunteering opportunities appearing all the time in G magazine and on the website.
