SuperGrans are special people
Our ‘SuperGrans’ are pretty amazing. Some are older ‘Grans’, some young ‘Grans’ and some not ‘Grans’ at all, in fact some are blokes!
They all have some things in common though – huge practical experience in life skills and they’re generous, community minded people.
The SuperGrans who work with our clients are specially selected for the type of experience and skills they have, and they are trained to be SuperGrans. They do this all in their own time alongside paid co-ordinators to guide them.
We are very careful to check that SuperGran volunteers have no criminal history and are the sort of people to be good role models. This is very important to us. We have to know that our clients are safe and can look up to our SuperGrans with great respect.
Then, we match them up with clients who need their particular skills.
If it’s workshops we’re doing, there are lots of volunteers working in the group so that there is individual attention all the way.
