The objectives of the Farm are: • To produce and sell local food; • To provide community access to land and its produce; • To provide opportunities for the local community to come together and learn about growing food, agriculture and sustainable living; • To provide a space for events, workshops, training, social time and celebration. Currently they grow and deliver fresh, local vegetables and eggs to the local community through their veg boxes, farm shop, local farmers’ markets and to local businesses and schools. They have 6 polytunnels, a fruit cage, several bee hives and a number of outbuildings including the Hive, their education space. In addition Bosavern Community Farm provides an environment for education, workshops, events and for the community to cultivate skills and join together to celebrate the produce and the seasons.

Arbeit

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.

The volunteers will be living either in the Cathedral city of Canterbury which has a large student population, or in the town of Dover with its famous castle and white cliffs. 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) LOCATION FOR THIS PROJECT: For this specific shift starting in June 2019 the location of the project is DOVER.
