Volunteering at Yorkshire Housing’s Home Improvement Agency in North Yorkshire
Yorkshire Housing’s Home Improvement Agency in North Yorkshire employs handypersons to help people remain in their own homes by completing all those small jobs/adaptations that generally older people can no longer do.
We visit people in their own homes and offer advice and support on keeping warm and well.
We are looking for volunteers to go out with the handypersons to assist them and also spend time chatting with our customers. We always have new initiatives going on and we try to get the information out to as many people as we can, but don’t always have the extra time to spend with our customers.
Our handyperson service covers Hambleton, Richmondshire, Selby, Craven and Harrogate and our office is in Northallerton.
We also have a second opportunity for a volunteer to assist in our office on social media/promotional work and the occasional visit with our needs, advice and support officer on grant work.
Skills and experience required:
A friendly, calm person who is happy to assist the handyperson or sit and chat with customers. A background in health, funding, administration, promotion or building trades would be really useful, but not essential.
