Volunteering With Kingdom Homes Ltd

Volunteering is a powerful force in our society. It gives citizens of all ages and from all backgrounds the chance to get involved in the life of their community. It offers opportunities for growth and change both for the volunteer and the people that they help.
Kingdom Homes believes that volunteers can make an important contribution to our work. Volunteers commit time, share skills and bring fresh ideas. They can help us to improve the quality of life of the people we care for, creating a bridge to all the options and opportunities that exist in the community.
If you have a few hours to spare there are many ways in which you can help:-
- Sharing your skills or hobbies with residents. Flower arranging, model railways, wildlife, photography, gardening etc.
- Driving residents or accompanying them on a stroll.
- Spending an hour chatting or reading to someone.
- Help us turn residents Wishing Well requests into reality.
The list is endless. You will find the experience rewarding and you will be helping someone else.
Joe Kyle is one of our volunteers. Joe says volunteering gets him out and about, meeting people and he enjoys the fact that he is helping others at the same time. Having worked all his life, latterly as a chef with Kingdom Homes, he didn't hesitate to sign up as a volunteer when he retired.
Joe has chosen to take part in a wide range of activities from baking with residents to helping the gardener keep Kingdom Homes gardens looking their best. He has even been on a trip to Ibrox Stadium in Glasgow as an escort for a group of residents who went there on a visit.
If you are interested in becoming a volunteer with us please call in to one of our care homes for a chat with the manager. Alternatively you may call Julie Wallace, Care Director on 01592 722227 for more information.
