  • Advice and Information

This is an extremely rewarding opportunity to support people think about and make plans for their later life. You will work with them online (using Zoom) for up to four sessions of up to an hour each, spread across two or three months.

No experience or specialist knowledge required, you will not be giving advice but supporting people to identify and meet their priorities. Full training will be provided and you will use our My Future Care Handbook as an information resource and as a structure for the conversation.

What skills do I need?

You need to be a good listener, be empathic and have a positive outlook on life.

You will also need to be patient and non-judgemental but there are otherwise no specific skills required as you will be given full training and the My Future Care Handbook contains all the information you need.
