Wood Workshop Assistant

This role specifically supports clients who have experienced a neurological or physical injury or are experiencing the symptoms of a deteriorating neurological disease.

You will be offering assistance when tasks become too challenging or simply providing guidance. This is a great opportunity for volunteers who are wood work hobbyists and wish to use their skills to give back to the community.

Volunteers are supported by our Wood Workshop Manager and a 30 minute Health & Safety induction will take place on your first shift. This covers fire evacuation, emergency procedures and manual wheelchair operation.
