Offering day support is a varied role and you would support for people for anything from an hour a week to help them get to church or play a board game, to a couple of days a week taking trips out or cooking. They might also want to do some gardening or getting help with their finances or life admin.
This is a flexible option as the time of day, regularity of support and the type of support needed all vary from person to person. The support will be based at your home, so the person you support would come to you for each session.
This is a really good way to fit support in around your job, studies or family life while still earning and giving something back.
