Organisation: Speak with IT
Role Description: Speak with IT are recruiting volunteers to join their exciting Speech Therapy programme across Yorkshire. We assist patients suffering from Aphasia to recover their verbal communication skills, this maintains their ability to influence their environment, maintain social relationships and improve their quality of life.
Volunteers must be IT literate, friendly, positive and patient – self-starters who can work independently. Availability must be during the day due to the nature of the physical condition the people we help are living with.
Owning your own transport is an advantage but not mandatory. We request a minimum of 12 month’s commitment and a commitment to help a minimum of two clients (preferably more) within your geographical location. The amount of time required to support one client is generally 1.5 hour plus travel time per month. Visits take place at the client’s home address at times agreed by the volunteer and the client. This volunteering opportunity is flexible and is based around your availability. This is a great opportunity to make a positive contribution to your community and to learn new skills.
