Speak With IT match people with aphasia (speech and communication difficulties) with a trained volunteer who will support the person to work on their goals using a variety of computer therapy programs. We are recruiting for Volunteer Speech Support Workers across Yorkshire who can provide valuable one to one support for people with aphasia on speech therapy apps. Our volunteers support people with aphasia in their own home and over videocalls, with visits organised around your availability and the people you are supporting.
Volunteers will schedule appointments each month to check on their client’s progress with the apps, make sure the exercises are an adequate challenge and that they are focused on working towards useful goals for the client such as learning to text.
Volunteers will also provide a link to the world outside, as many of our clients are socially isolated or may be choosing to shield. Conversation with their volunteer, someone trained to communicate with them effectively can be massively beneficial to both communication and overall mood.

Hosted by: B:Friend

Can you befriend an isolating older neighbour in Barnsley? Sadly we all now know what it feels like to be stuck inside but for many older people that is going to remain the situation throughout the winter months. Can you pick up the phone, or pop over to visit, someone nearby that otherwise may not have anyone to see or speak to. By becoming a befriender you can offer new companionship and support to an older neighbour. Kathleen (83) in Thurnscoe said: "Every time I see or speak to Nicola [befriender] it makes me feel like I'm still part of the world. Like someone cares." Just an hour a week can completely change someone's life.

Hosted by: Survivors of Bereavement by Suicide

Have you been Bereaved by Suicide? Do you have a desire to help other people who have also been Bereaved by Suicide?

We have self-help support groups across the UK, where you can meet with other people who have been bereaved by suicide and we want to recruit additional volunteers to compliment those we already have in order to establish a new group in Barnsley. Typically, our groups meet once a month and last for around 2 hours. Presently many groups are meeting virtually via Zoom but when regulations allow, they will return to Face to Face. They provide an opportunity to listen, to share, to ask questions and to connect with others.

Each local SoBS group is run by a team of 3: the group leader and two group volunteers, all of whom have been bereaved by suicide themselves. Between them, they facilitate the session, get the conversation started, make sure everyone has the opportunity to talk if they want to, and generally look out for people and each other. The team also work together to manage the administration, fundraising and communication for the group, sometimes with the help of additional support volunteers who are not themselves bereaved.

This very small Trust, which has no office, telephone or email facility, is almost completely reliant on volunteers and communicates initially with applicants by post only. When an eligible, completed application form is received, an assessor will telephone the applicant to arrange a meeting at an agreed venue. The assessor will then discuss the application with the applicant and, where necessary, advise the applicant how best to proceed before preparing their report and recommendation. This report is emailed to all Trustees who circulate their recommendations so that a consensus may be obtained. The average grant awarded is about £500 and course fees are paid directly to the college/ training provider.

The Trust is looking for people –
To act as Trustees. Trustees are expected to make comments on 10 to 25 grant applications PER YEAR. Thus the time commitment involved is very limited and can be undertaken at times to suit the Trustee. We hope that most Trustees could make their recommendations within a week of receiving a copy of an application. In addition the Trust meets at lunch time in Barnsley as a Management Committee just three times per annum. Some, not all, Trustees act as assessors also. This is optional.

Hosted by: Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council

We are recruiting for local volunteers in the Barnsley area to be part of the new Neighbourhood Justice programme.

The role of Neighbourhood Justice Facilitator
Neighbourhood Justice facilitators are volunteers from the local community and are trained to deliver restorative justice for anti-social behaviour and neighbour disputes.
Becoming a volunteer is a great opportunity to become more involved in your local community. Facilitators receive free restorative justice training and an opportunity to gain valuable work experience.
By becoming a facilitator, you will be at the heart of communities, engaging with local people and providing them with the tools and guidance they need to resolve conflict and move on.

What is the Neighbourhood Justice Programme?
The neighbourhood Justice programme provides a safe and neutral environment for restorative justice meetings to take place. Restorative justice gives victims the opportunity to communicate with the person who has caused them harm. It is an opportunity for the victim to explain how an incident has affected their life and hold the perpetrator to account for what they have done. It is an opportunity for the perpetrator to take responsibility for their actions and try to make amends. Research suggests that restorative justice has significant benefits for victims and also helps reduce reoffending.

Hours: There are no set times/hours. Each volunteer is expected to manage one case per month at times that fit around the volunteer’s schedule and the schedule of the participants.
Location: Community and home based. On occasion volunteers will be required to meet with the Neighbourhood Justice Coordinator for supervision. The role will cover the cost of expenses and mileage.

This might be funds for special equipment for someone with a disability, adaptions to a property so an older client can remain at home or funds for a rental deposit. Caseworkers also sign-post clients onto specialist local services for advice on benefits, housing, mental health, debt, finding work etc.
Volunteer Caseworkers are the lifeblood of SSAFA, supporting a growing number of people in need of financial, practical and emotional support. Clients come from all backgrounds and age groups and may have served in WW2 or in a more recent conflict like Iraq or Afghanistan. Our trained volunteers listen without judgement to assess and provide tailored support to help people navigate life in and beyond military service. We need you to join your local SSAFA team to help us achieve this.
