Careplus volunteers come from all ages and walks of life
Volunteering can give a fantastic sense of achievement, provide new skills, friendships and the satisfaction that you have played a part in improving the lives of older people.
To get involved, please call 07930 955 398 and speak to our Charity Manager, Miranda.
If you decide you want to volunteer with Careplus you will need to complete an application form. We will also have to carry out a DBS check that usually takes a few weeks to be completed.
Being a volunteer with Careplus enables you to receive information regarding training sessions that you are invited to attend. We recommend that you attend the Adults Safeguarding session to enhance your knowledge when volunteering.
You will be invited to social gatherings for our volunteers and you will have the chance to assist or attend any fundraising events.
We have some amazing volunteers, including Jane who just received an award from Community Links Bromley for ‘Outstanding Commitment.’ Her profile read: ‘Jane has done training in Adult Safeguarding levels 1 and 2, dementia awareness and first aid. She drives many miles to do shopping, get clients to appointments with their dentist, GP and/or several local hospitals. Jane also manages trips to other clinics, the Blind Club, the post office and bank. This is all done in a professional manner, calmly, wisely, humbly and lovingly.

Our volunteers have several training opportunities available to them:

Free online training provided for residents by Bromley borough (MeLearning).
Occasional group training in Safeguarding, at weekends for volunteers who work on weekdays.
