The LEAP organisation is a well-established, award winning charity which provides free practical assistance to people over the age of 50 who are experiencing difficulties due to their physical or mental health conditions.
Within LEAP’s Hands On Project, the handyperson service, with the assistance of trained volunteers, helps older people, by carrying out a range of small repair jobs and tasks around the home to help them remain safe in their own home. We also offer a befriending service which matches volunteers with clients in their own home to provide companionship and a chat, helping older people to feel less lonely and isolated. The volunteers also assist individuals to become more active in their community by providing support to access local activities, therefore improving social connections, health and wellbeing.
We are looking to recruit an enthusiastic and motivated Handyperson volunteer jobs co-ordinator (Administration Assistant) to co-ordinate the delivery of our handyperson service. You will support our team of volunteers and project supervisor to deliver effective front-line practical support to older people around their home.
