4th October to 4th October
The Caseworker role is about supporting and listening to an individual and assessing their needs - this can include anything from helping them to complete a form, applying for funding for a wet-room or new white goods.
This activity is brought to you by The Union in partnership with Manchester Community Central

Caseworkers may also need to gather complex information and ask questions regarding finances and health conditions. You would be required to provide clear and precise information on these topics.
An RAF or forces background is not essential, and we welcome applications from all areas of the community.
A Caseworker is someone who carries out work for the Royal Air Force Association on a voluntary basis by gathering information, asking questions and completing necessary forms and by doing so, you will make a real difference. You will also work closely with the Area Welfare Officer to complete each case succesfully.
