Befrienders and gardener/care home supports sought in Newton Stewart

Community Integrated Care’s Cornwall Park in Newton Stewart is looking for befrienders for elderly people and gardeners/care home support.

Do you have a few hours spare just to sit and chat or to help take residents out for a short walk?

The minimum age for the befrienders is 18 and the time could be to suit the individual.

The gardener/care home support volunteering opportunity would involve light jobs such as sweeping, weeding, painting garden furniture and some involvement inside the home such as arts and crafts and sitting to chat with residents. Again, the minimum age is 18.

To find out more on both opportunities please contact support coordinator Lori Johnston on 01671 404600.
