Zumba Buddy (Milestones Trust)

Can you spare an hour on a Saturday morning to join in at our zumba class and motivate service users?

Milestones Trust is a health and social care charity which supports people with learning disabilities, mental health needs and people living with dementia.  The services are provided through a network of residential/nursing care homes and supported living homes throughout the Bristol and South Gloucestershire areas.

We run a zumba class on a Saturday morning that is open to all service users within the Trust, and we are looking for a volunteer to join in the class and help energise and encourage those who attend.

We are looking for a volunteer who is:-

  • Interested in exercise classes and fitness
  • Reliable
  • Fun and caring
  • Encouraging and motivating
  • Available on Saturday mornings at 11:00am - 12:00pm

No particular skills are required but good communication skills, confidence and a desire to help people would be a great advantage.  It is also not necessary for you to have experience of zumba, you just need to be happy to join in and motivate the attendees!

You will be given an induction, and the manager who organises the class will introduce you to the service users and will support you into the role.

The class is held at St John's Church Hall in Fishponds (BS16 3QG) and we cover travel expenses if required.

Please note due to the nature of our service user group a DBS check will be carried out.

If this sounds like something you would like to get involved in we would love to hear from you.
