External: VOLUNTEER Group Coordinators with Re-engage (bilingual)
Re-engage are looking for volunteers to help their activity groups for the over 75’s in Wales! / Mae Re-engage yn chwilio am wirfoddolwyr i gynorthwyo gyda’n grwpiau gweithgareddau I’r rhai drost 75 yng Nghymru!
Re-engage is a national charity dedicated to ending loneliness and social isolation. Their activity groups bring people over 75 together in local communities across Wales to help reduce loneliness and social isolation, and improve physical wellbeing.
Their groups rely on the support of volunteers to bring together communities and engage in activities such as gentle exercise, tai chi, gardening, walking or a game of boules. Their groups are free to attend, and they provide light refreshments to enjoy at their fortnightly or monthly groups.
Their groups are expanding all across Wales and they’re looking for group coordinators to help launch a group in your area or to host one of their existing groups in Wales.
As a volunteer group coordinator, you will coordinate activity-based groups in community centres, pubs or church spaces. Groups host between 4 and 15 older people, along with their volunteer drivers who pick up and drop off their activity guests. As a volunteer group coordinator, you can either set up a new group in your local community or help them facilitate an existing group.
Activities at their groups vary from chair fitness, dancing, yoga and boules to gardening, tai-chi or coming up with your own activity to get people moving.
To enable them to reach more older people across Wales, they need volunteers to help facilitate their groups. Groups meet for around 2 hours every month and activities are inclusive for all older people.
Do you think you could be their next volunteer?
