Reference nr. 2809 : Greenways Trust
One-on-one companion

Greenways Trust provides support for adults of all ages with intellectual disabilities, including residential housing as close to family living as possible, supported employment and community participation. We run activities for our residents over the whole week, from sports activities with the Special Olympics to outings in the Dargaville region.

Volunteers of the Trust play a big part in adding social and cultural interactions and are welcomed and highly valued for the diversity they bring to complement our service.

We are looking for two people on Friday afternoons (1 - 3pm) to do outings with one of our younger female residents and one of our older male residents. Ideally, we would match them up with someone of their own gender and age group. It's up to you what you do: go to a cafe or shop, on beach walks, to visit farm animals or go for a ride (the older resident loves trucks).

Training
You will be introduced to the residents by our staff. No other training needed.

Specific requirements
  • Be available to spend some time with one of our residents Friday afternoons between 1 - 3pm
  • Friendly person who is happy to help support others
