Lifeline Equipment Installer

One Community is looking for volunteers to go into clients' homes in the borough of Eastleigh to install and remove emergency lifeline equipment. An installation takes about an hour, as there is a form to fill in with the client's details, but a removal is quicker. We send the client's details to you, so you can arrange to go to the client's home at a mutually convenient time. You will need your own transport to get to people's homes, but a mileage allowance and expenses are paid. This volunteering role could be taken on by a couple, or two friends, one filling in the form while the other installs the lifeline. But most volunteers work on their own. The installation of the lifeline makes a huge difference to the lives of frail and vulnerable clients, enabling them to live independently with the confidence that they can summon help quickly when necessary, by simply pressing the button worn around the neck or on the wrist. 


No specific experience is required, as you will be shadowing an experienced volunteer at first to get to know the equipment and see how it works. It is not technically difficult to install the equipment once you have been shown how to do it.

You will need to get to clients houses, so access to a car would be helpful.
