Volcare offers Carers the opportunity to have a break from their caring role by offering them flexible home based respite care. Carers are: friends or relatives who care for someone full-time, e.g. a wife caring for a disabled husband, a daughter caring for an elderly parent, or a parent caring for a disabled child. Carers can find it very difficult to get a break from caring and Volcare offers them the opportunity to take breaks/holidays. This is called respite care. Volunteers get to know Carers and their families by visiting them on a regular basis for a whole day, over a three to four week period (this can vary from family to family), before moving in and taking over the caring role completely. The full time Carer can then have a break. This can be for a whole day or overnight, a weekend, a whole week or occasionally for two weeks (this would be shared by two volunteers). The volunteer can also volunteer alongside the Carer, this is called shared care. Each volunteer may support between 12 and 20 families during their time with Volcare. This could be on a long term or short-term basis. For all breaks longer than one day, the volunteer moves in and lives with the cared for person, staying with the person overnight. Volcare help Carers caring for people with: Parkinsons Disease, Dementia, Stroke, Multiple Sclerosis, Head Injury, Learning Disability, Autism, and many more conditions. As a full time volunteer you will be gaining new skills and experience as well as new friendships, lasting memories, a sense of achievement and ideas for your future career.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

Volunteers will either stay in a house where there are 4 volunteers or a flat where there are two volunteers and all facilities are provided. There is a telephone with incoming calls which accepts international cards and internet is also provided. Volcare will provide volunteers with food, pocket money/allowance.

Both locations are close to the coast and some very beautiful countryside. Day trips to London and even to France can be easily planned (depending on your visa status).

Lage und Freizeit

The Fairthorne Manor Estate is situated in a rural location and covers an area of 111 acres of grassland, woodland and a Family Campsite. It is located at the top of the Hamble River estuary and also includes a lake, ponds and a stream. The Hamble River is well known as one of the world’s premiere yachting centres. The grounds themselves have a tremendous history, which can be traced back to Roman times. The manor was built in 1854 as a Victorian Country residence. During the Second World War it was occupied by the army who used it as one of their ‘map-centres’ for planning the invasion of Normandy, in France. The YMCA acquired the estate in 1947 to accommodate the land training ship, T.S. Warfleet a training establishment for British boys entering the merchant navy or crewing onboard private yachts. This lasted for 15 years and since then it has seen numerous changes before becoming what it is today. Botley is the nearest village to Fairthorne and is around 15 minutes walk away. It is a typical English village with three pubs, a late opening general store, a post office, cash point, hairdressers, several restaurants including a Chinese and Indian takeaway. Hedge End is three miles from Fairthorne and can be reached on foot or by bus. It is larger than Botley, with several banks, supermarkets and a better choice of shops. It also has the nearest swimming pool. Southampton is the nearest large town / city which can be reached by train, it includes one of the country’s newest and largest shopping centre’s as well as a large waterfront with bars and restaurants, theatres, cinema’s and night-clubs. It is also well known as the start and finish of many of the world’s largest ocean yachting races. Portsmouth is another large city, which can be reached by train and is best known as a historical naval port with many popular attractions such as Nelson’s flagship, the Victory, and shopping marina Gunwharf. Winchester, which can be reached by train, has numerous good shops and is best known for its many fine old buildings, particularly its cathedral.
