Support Volunteers for Chrysalis

Support volunteers meet and greet new beneficiaries and welcome them to the group. They also ensure that the structure of meetings stays within Chrysalis guidelines. Support volunteers need to be empathetic and willing to gain an understanding of Transgender issues. Listening skills are an advantage, but empathy and positive regard are the most important qualities. You will need to talk to and support vulnerable beneficiaries. Chrysalis is looking for volunteers who can embrace the principles of the charity and its equality and diversity ethos. A support person should have good communication skills; the ability to listen and enable all Chrysalis beneficiaries to express themselves in a safe and nurturing environment. Support volunteers need to commit to attend the group meetings, which are on the first and third Friday of each month from 6pm to 10pm. They will also need to attend regular supervision and ongoing training.

Handyperson Volunteers

Age Concern Eastleigh offers a low level handyman service to the local area. The service is run entirely by volunteers, which enables Age Concern to offer the service at greatly reduced rates. Age Concern is looking for additional volunteers to help them with the service. If you have a couple of hours a week/month free and can help local residents with low level DIY jobs then we’d love to hear from you.
