Volunteer Roles

Carers Support Volunteers

Carers Support Volunteers work under the direction of a Carer Connector to provide one-to-one support to a carer, helping to achieve outcomes and goals that they identified during the preventative assessment process in their support plan. This could include providing emotional and befriending support to a carer by telephone or in person or helping to connect them to local sources of support, for example, introducing a carer to a local support group or helping them attend a social activity in their local area.
Carers Support Volunteers work in partnership with paid Carer Connectors to facilitate and empower carers to achieve the great degree of choice and control, independence and quality of life as possible.

Carer Ambassadors

Carer Ambassadors are local people who increase awareness of carers and the issues affecting them by giving talks to local groups, engaging with employers, attending conferences and events on behalf of Carers Matter Norfolk.

 

Social Media Assistant

Social Media Assistants are people who help us to generate social media activity, raising the profile of carers and local support available to them. This could include producing written and video blogs, capturing the lived experience of carers and the people they care for through the use of technology.

 

Carers Group Facilitators

Carers Group Facilitators are people who help with the organisation and delivery of local peer support groups for carers; this might include arranging speakers, opening and locking up premises, signposting and referring to internal teams within Carers Matter Norfolk.

 

Peer Advisors and Mentors

Peer Advisors provide telephone and/or online information, advice, signposting and listening support work from home. Peer Mentors use their lived experience of caring to build a climate of trust and a safe and supportive environment. The Mentor will support the Carer in setting their own outcomes and work towards achieving them.
