Position Available Occasional Shopper
Location Ilkley
Details of Position The purpose of our ShopAssist scheme is to enable older and vulnerable members of our community to access and choose fresh groceries.

We are looking for people who can support our clients by providing shops when the regular volunteer is unavailable. This may involve covering ShopAssist shops which involve accompanying the client to and from the supermarket, providing any support required in store and helping to put items away once home, if asked. Alternatively, this may be for our Shop & Drop service where the volunteer shops alone, on behalf of the client.

The commitment per shop is a maximum of two hours and the volunteer would ideally have access to their own personal vehicle.

Depending on the reason for the cover, volunteers may be contacted at fairly short notice. IDGN operates a group of occasional volunteers so it is not expected that the volunteer will be able to cover in every instance.

Full vetting process and training provided.
