CABA Support Volunteers work alongside CABA Support Officers bringing members' unique additional skills and expertise to support CABA clients. Each client has individual requirements which CABA aims to support in a holistic manner and members can provide an invaluable addition to this.

A CABA Support Volunteer is required to support a retired member who early onset dementia affecting his short term memory with a pen pal correspondence.

His wife reports that one of his main delights has been a pen pal correspondence with someone in Hong Kong which has sadly come to an end. Client lives in a rural location and is thus somewhat isolated. He has two great passions in sport and nature but welcomes hearing of matters of interest from a person's daily life and locality however small, from the UK or the world  This would bring much needed pleasure and stimulation for him.  

This is a general support role; confidentiality and a non-judgemental attitude are paramount.
