Details of Service

The Social Buddies Volunteer programme is a Service Reform Initiative within CHO 1 that has been developed as a result of the Service Reform Fund (SRF). The Service Reform Fund (SRF) has been established to support the implementation of reforms in the Disability Service in Ireland. The SRF provides resources to re-configure existing services towards more person-centred, cost effective approaches in line with government policy.

The Social Buddies Programme is a community-based programme in which interested and eligible volunteers are matched up with a service user on the basis of age, interest and geographical location. Service users will have the opportunity to increase social skills, independence and confidence. The Social Buddies Programme directly meets the prioritised demand for flexible day service supports. The programme establishes supports outside of normal service hours in order to allow service users to participate in evening and weekend activities, which is necessary to providing support for a full life.

Purpose of the Post:

The Social Buddies Programme Coordinator will facilitate, oversee and support the implementation of the Social Buddies Volunteer programme in Disability day services within Community Healthcare Organisation 1.
