We ask that you are able to commit a minimum of 3 hours a week and will provide full training and induction into the role. The role may involve travel to client appointments (sometimes home visits) across North Bristol and parts of South Gloucestershire so access to transport is essential.

This role is a great opportunity to get involved in a project that is committed to helping people to make positive changes in their lives.
