Volunteer holiday home helper

Locations

  • White Cross Bay Holiday Park, Windermere, Cumbria, LA23 1LF
  • Brynteg Country & Leisure Retreat, Llanrug, Near Caernarfon, Gwynedd, LL55 4RF
  • Waterside Holiday Park & Spa, Bowleaze Coveway, Weymouth DT3 6PP

Commitment

Flexible (1-2 hours a week)

Aim

To provide memorable holidays and vital respite to people living with EB and their families, DEBRA has a number of holiday homes that members can hire at a low cost

The role will involve

Regularly visiting our holiday home to look over the property internally and externally looking for any maintenance issues, health & safety issues, cleanliness and to generally make sure the holiday home is well equipped with good quality items and equipment that is not broken or worn and report back to us.

Ideally we would also like to be able to provide a basic grocery welcome pack in each holiday at the start of each booking; however this is not essential as this will largely depend on the availability of our volunteers.

We would also like our volunteers to replace small items as they see fit, e.g. replacing a shower mat, purchasing salt/rinse aid and filling up the dishwasher to prolong its life (if applicable), and of course expenses for items purchased will be reimbursed.

What we require from you

  • We are looking for people who will view the holiday home as a ‘home away from home’; and have our members’ interests at heart
  • Someone who has an eye for detail
