Tablehurst Care Home – Volunteers Wanted

By volunteering at Tablehurst Farm’s care home, a little of your time could make a big difference to our residents.

We’ve had a small residential care home at Tablehurst Farm for many years now. Our aim is to provide meaningful lives and fulfilling work in the farm and garden for three adults with learning disabilities.

We’re always looking for friendly, approachable people who can spend a few hours a week helping our residents. And whatever your background, interests and experience, we’ll do our best to find the right opportunity for you at the Farm.

What might I be doing as a volunteer?

In essence, it’s all about accompanying our residents in their working tasks or looking after them during their leisure time.

Mature adults who have got experience relevant to social care, the farm and garden or can bring DiY or chainsaw skills are especially welcome – but whatever your interests, as long as you are friendly, approachable and reliable, we’re sure we can find you some worthwhile activities.

Who volunteers at Tablehurst?

People from all walks of life! You don’t need any specialist qualifications or prior experience and we’ll give you any additional training you might need. We will also carry out a DBS (criminal records) check and take references.

How do I apply to be a volunteer?

Please speak to Torsten Draheim (07391 583546) or Jeremy Smith (07940 859495), or send an email to: tablehurstcarehome@gmail.com

We’ll then arrange a time to meet you, show you around the care home and the farm and have a chat about what you want to get out of volunteering.
