We are looking for activity leads in Birmingham to run a local Re-engage group who meet on a monthly or bi-monthly basis. Activities can vary from Boccia, skittles and dancing to gardening, curling or coming up with you own activity to get people moving.

As a Volunteer Activity Lead you will run a local Re-engage group who meet on a monthly or fortnightly basis. You will deliver or facilitate regular physical activity sessions for people aged 75 and over in community centres, pubs or church spaces.

This is a flexible role and each group will host anywhere between four and 15 activity guests, along with our volunteer drivers who pick up and drop off our activity guests.

Activities can vary from boules and skittles, dancing or singing, or coming up with your own activity to get people moving. In some groups we may have another person coming in to run a specific class so we would ask you to facilitate this and support the activity guests who are attending on the day.

You will be required to complete a DBS check for this role, for which Re-engage will cover the cost.

Tasks include:
Facilitating or delivering an inclusive activity with the focus on physical health and social wellbeing.
Making activity guests feel welcome to the groups and ensuring people can participate in the activities. Activity groups are coordinated by a volunteer group coordinator.
Following the guidance in your training to ensure that your group sessions are enjoyable, appropriate and in line with our charitable aims.
As one of our valued volunteers, you’ll receive training from Re-engage, and support and regular communications from your group coordinator. This is a fun and rewarding role which will enable you to connect with lonely older people and make a real and lasting difference to their life.
