You can get involved with Snow Angels by volunteering with us or by sponsoring activities. Sponsorship enables us to provide additional support to the key services we provide.
We are always keen to hear from you if you would like to get involved as a volunteer. Our volunteers provide vital support to older people and people with disabilities who are living in their own homes. We have a number of volunteer roles including be-friending, practical support including changing lightbulbs etc., shopping, dog walking etc. We keep in touch with all our customers on a weekly basis to make sure that they are OK and whether they need any support.
When someone needs support we will contact our volunteers to see who is available – some of our volunteers are available at different times and we do not require a set number of hours per week. We will also ask you what type of support you are prepared to offer.
If you are interested in becoming a volunteer please get in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 0300 666 6226. We are currently running schemes in Cheshire. If you would like to talk about setting up a scheme in your area please contact us.
As a social enterprise (a not for profit organisation) we want to work with people and organisations to help to further support older and vulnerable people, and to make sure that we can offer our volunteers a wider range of high quality training.
Keeping in touch
We are starting a small pilot with tablets to enable older people to keep in touch with each other and their friends and families, our volunteers, and for our weekly telephone calls. We have the funding for 15 tablets but we would like to extend this.
We would like to be able to offer our volunteers a wider range of training courses and to hold events to say a big thanks for all their hard work during the year.
What is my sponsorship money spent on?
All sponsorship funding is spent on supporting our volunteers and in providing additional services to the older people we support. Sponsorship funding is not used for staffing or overhead costs.
