Welfare Assessors visit our longer-term beneficiaries in their own homes once a year. The visit normally takes around 45 minutes and includes the completion of a financial assessment, an update of personal information, and a general chat on current health and wellbeing to identify any additional areas of support needed.
“Being a Volunteer Assessor allows me to meet people from the industry and pick my visit around my lifestyle. Volunteering gives me the chance to help people who need it most. I would definitely recommend being an Assessor as it has given me great personal satisfaction.” – Liz Hicks, Volunteer Assessor
