Chest, Heart and Stroke Scotland (CHSS) aims to improve the quality of life for people affected by chest, heart and stroke illness in Scotland. The organisation funds medical research and provides a range of support services for people in the community. We rely on a team of over 1000 volunteers across Scotland to help deliver services to people who have suffered these illnesses and help to raise the funds needed to do this.
The volunteer will be trained in the strategies and techniques of comunication support in order to ensure that our service users are supported effectively by their communication partner and ensure inclusion, with the appropriate level of support for both group and one to one conversations.
Caring and considerate attitude, patience, good organiser, good observational skills, genuine desire to support people, reliable.
