With this post, we're looking to reach out to individuals interested in volunteering and grow our volunteer community.
Which organisation will you be supporting?
Symbiosia aims to transform the residential social care model in the UK, by providing a financially viable, and fun for all generations alternative to traditional nursing homes, carbon negative. Their mission is to disrupt the social care industry by creating a fun based new concept which tackles significant challenges, such as affordability, staff retention, and intergenerational disconnect. Symbiosia will act as a community hub, designed to foster interaction among residents, staff, and visitors, and to diminish the societal stigmas surrounding nursing homes. Their vision is a residential social care facility like never seen before: a carbon-negative structure enveloped within an eco-friendly leisure park.

Organised work flow with other occasional volunteers/students.
