As a Co-ordinator you will be responsible for carrying out client assessments, developing personal support plans with the client, matching clients with volunteers who help our clients achieve their goals, supervising volunteers and monitoring progress to ensure our clients achieve a successful outcome. This role also supports the senior coordinator in promoting the service as well as recruiting and supporting volunteers.
