We know that relaxation therapy can really enhance a carer’s wellbeing.

We offer relaxation therapy support to unpaid family carers and are now ready for more volunteers to join our team. We have a range of flexible opportunities for experienced or newly qualified therapists. Read on if you are interested in supporting carers either in a group setting or on a 1:1 basis.

You will give full treatments on a couch (provided) working alone with the client in a side room off the main office in Bedford or Biggleswade. We also have opportunities around Bedfordshire for relaxation volunteers to give seated, fully clothed therapies to carers who visit one of our support groups such as manicures, hand massage, foot massage, neck and shoulder massage.

Either role could be on a regular basis or as and when depending your availability and location.

This is a great opportunity to give back to the community and to make a difference, helping a specific client group with caring responsibilities. You will gain experience of working within a well-regarded local charity within the health and social care sector, at times working with people with complex needs.

What we are looking for from a volunteer -
• To be fully qualified in chosen therapies and insured to practice.
• To be a member of a relevant professional body.
• To work as part of a team but also be confident to work independently.
• To have good communication skills.
• Experience as a carer or working with people with serious illness would be an advantage.
• Desire to help others, some with complex needs.
• Work in line with data protection and confidentiality policy.
• Be reliable and committed.
