Richmond Cheshire House with
the Ref no. 2011-IE-5 is a
residential home for 24 people
with either physical
disabilities or neurological
conditions aged between 36
and 65.
Richmond House is located in
the village of Monkstown
beside the sea.
As a host organisation Richmond Cheshire House supports 3 volunteers, on
one year placements at any one time. Volunteer roles are considered
as additional and separate
to those of paid staff.

On arrival volunteers will receive an induction into the routines of
Richmond House and they will receive training around best practice
for supporting people with disabilities. Volunteers are coordinated
by the Lifestyle Facilitator. Volunteers interact with people through
recreational activities such as social outings. They sometimes
accompany residents to attend day centres, hospital and doctors
appointments as necessary. Volunteers help residents with their daily
needs and aspects of their personal care when they are together
outside of the house. Volunteers accompany people on public transport.
They also assist with administration duties such as organising daily
transport and day trip arrangements.

Richmond Cheshire House is looking for volunteers who like
interacting with people and are flexible, with a reasonable standard
of English. Although experience of assisting people with disabilities
is not essential, some experience of assisting disadvantaged children
or adults will be an advantage. Preferably volunteers will be students
taking a year out between school and university, with a desire to
experience another culture and to improve their English. Volunteers
are advised to familiarise themselves with the location where
Richmond House is based, so that they know what to expect before they
