DASH - Advice and Support Worker

Details of the Charity:

We believe that disability is caused by the way society is organised and run. Disability is not caused by a person’s impairment but by a lack of access to equipment, services, employment/educational opportunities, and an appropriately designed environment.

Details of the Volunteering Opportunity:

This Volunteer would attend food banks to support an existing DASH employee. They would need to be computer literate and able to research information and advice about local facilities, benefits or signpost them to the relevant service required. They should be sociable, willing to engage with people and ask relevant questions in order to see what help is needed. They should be confident using the telephone and computer as some clients may prefer to engage in this way. They should have a good knowledge of zoom/teams and be willing to make connections with a client with support.
