We are looking for friendly, non-judgemental, sociable individuals to help organise and
run activities for the people that we support in our services. Ideally you are enthusiastic,
patient, have a sense of humour, good communication skills and experience of life. We
are looking for people who can teach or pass on skills and tailor activities to small groups
or individual interests. We are always looking for suggestions and activities that are fun
and will add enjoyment to a supported person’s life.

Tasks include:-

  • Help organise and run fun and engaging activities for the people that we support
  • in our services
  • Supporting group sessions
  • Participate in group activities and help the people we work with to identify
  • personal interests, strengths, skills, and their own potential.
  • Leading on activities
  • Contribute ideas and attend planning meetings
  • Demonstrating life skills to people receiving ongoing support or whose support
  • could be heading towards a close e.g., encouraging them to cook a meal or bake,
  • leading by example.
  • Accompany small group outings where appropriate.
  • Encouraging our supported people’s sense of belonging and connection
  • Building our supported people’s confidence and self esteem



We are a social care organisation that empowers people to thrive, by delivering solution
in connected communities which focus on the needs of each individual.
At Blue Triangle we use the power of Public, Social, and Private Partnerships (PSPP) to
support young people and adults by:

  • Going beyond, by providing tailored, supported accommodation
  • Delivering person centred, trauma informed support services that take a whole
  • system approach
  • Empower and support the development of positive connections and lasting
  • relationships
  • Helping to build safe, supportive connected communities
  • Enabling those we support to live in supported housing - and ultimately beyond,
  • when the time is right for them



This is a chance for you to make a real difference to the most vulnerable people within
your community. You can meet new people and be part of an amazing team who are
passionate about what they do.
A complete and comprehensive induction and specific training about boundaries are
provided for this role:

  • Taster volunteer session
  • Onboarding workshop
  • In-role training is available – we value our volunteers and want to ensure you are
  • equipped with the skills you need to fulfil your role.
  • Volunteer mentoring on each shift. Further training may be available specific to
  • your role and working with vulnerable adults.
  • Travel expenses are covered.
