Baking Support for Lady Elsie Finney House

Engagement Support -Baking 

One of the best things about baking (apart from the lovely smell of freshly cooked food and cakes) is the pleasure of sharing it with others.

If you love to cook and are able to share that enthusiasm to encourage others (some of whom may never have baked before) this could be the ideal opportunity for you.

Older people services operate using quality services which are provided in a safe way for all residents, staff, volunteers, and visitors. Their core purpose is to provide high quality competitive, and person centred residential and daytime support for the service users.

Support from a Volunteer can help make a difference in someone’s life.

This opportunity takes place on a specific day and time, please check your availability before applying.

You must be willing to go through an induction process and relevant background checks; this role is subject to an enhanced DBS check.
