Do you want to make a difference to your community? Do you like spending time with people? Are you kind, caring, reliable and responsible?
Carers often find their own well-being is affected due to the pressure of caring, so having a regular short break can make all the difference. The South Glos 'Breaks for Carers' Sitting Service is looking for people who can offer 2-3 hours of their time, (normally during the day on a weekday) weekly or fortnightly to spend with a cared-for person so their carer can take a break. You’ll have induction, training and support, with paid travel expenses. We also have social events for volunteers. We’re looking for men and women over 18.
The Carers’ Support Centre provides support, information and advice to carers living in Bristol and South Gloucestershire. For more information about this role, please contact Marilyn Crump, Sitting Service Coordinator for an informal chat.

Tortworth Forest Centre is a not-for-profit Community Interest Company which aims to improve lives by reconnecting people with nature, through conservation, wellbeing programmes, outdoor events, courses and volunteering opportunities.
The Centre is based at Tortworth Arboretum, a historically and culturally rich woodland. There is huge potential to bring this unique place back to use and to share it with people who want to learn about woodlands and develop outdoor skills - so get in touch if you want to be a part of it.
