Midlin Day Care Centre - Carer and Befriender

Mid Lin Day Care Centre offers facilities for older people who may suffer from physical or mental health issues. Mid Lin have many different roles you can participate in. No volunteer will be asked to make anything out of their comfort zone. Volunteers will be encouraged to develop his/her skills within the kitchen environment. As confidence starts to build the volunteer may offer to assist the cook with more tasks but there is no pressure to take on more responsibility than the volunteer feels comfortable with.
