Language Preference: English

Number of Positions Available: 1

Location: Ottawa - Central

Deadline: Dec 27, 2019

Description

Sophie lives in the Sandy Hill area and is looking for someone who can help her engage in her community by attending local events, going for coffee, walking with her and possibly providing some practical help (understanding documents, basic computer skills and budgeting). An ideal volunteer Advocate for Sophie would be someone who is down-to-earth, patient and understanding.

As a friend to someone with a disability you can have a profound effect on their life by reducing loneliness and isolation; helping to achieve hopes and dreams; developing personal networks and relationships; decreasing vulnerability; and increasing self-confidence, mental and physical health.

Join our team of more than 250 volunteer advocates who are enriching the lives of someone in their community. You will gain a wonderful new friendship – someone to share activities that you love. You need to be over the age of 18 and to make a minimum commitment of 12 months to this role [Note: your status in Canada may affect your ability to make this commitment e.g. visitor visa, student visa, refugee claimant]. Preparation and ongoing support are provided.
