The Benefits of Volunteering

Volunteering at Leigh Place is a deeply rewarding experience that doesn’t require prior experience in elderly care. By engaging in simple tasks like chatting, reading, or playing games with our residents, or sharing your unique skills in drawing, painting, music, or technology, you can make a significant impact.

Volunteers bring joy, companionship, and new experiences to our residents. Your time and attention can brighten their day and provide much-needed social interaction. These seemingly small acts of kindness contribute greatly to the overall well-being and happiness of our community.

Volunteering offers numerous benefits for our volunteers themselves:

  • Sense of Purpose: Giving back to the community can bring a strong sense of purpose. Knowing that your efforts are making a difference in someone’s life is immensely fulfilling.
  • Connection Across Generations: Building relationships with residents allows you to gain a unique perspective on life. You will hear extraordinary stories and gain a deeper appreciation for the wisdom and experiences of previous generations.
  • Personal Growth: Volunteering helps you develop valuable skills such as communication, problem-solving, and organisational skills. It also fosters empathy and a better understanding of the challenges and joys that come with aging.
  • Our residents come from diverse backgrounds and have rich life experiences to share. Volunteering at Leigh Place is not just about giving; it is about growing, learning, and connecting. Whether you have a few hours a week or a few hours a month, your contribution is invaluable.

Come be a part of our community and experience the many benefits of volunteering. Together, we can create a vibrant and supportive environment for everyone.
