There are many ways you can help us provide support and services for older people in Horsham District. We value our volunteers and are very grateful for the time and energy that they give to help us.

Volunteering, or lending a hand, is a great way to gain different experience and give others the benefit of your experience. You become a member of a team and usually, the more effort you put in, the more satisfaction you get out.

Current volunteer roles

If you have some time to spare each week and would like to help us make later life a fulfilling and enjoyable experience for many local people, we would like to hear from you. Volunteers will receive support and training in their role.

All volunteers must provide two references and some roles are subject to Disclosure and Barring Service checks.

Perhaps you would like to help but don’t know what you can do? Here are a few of the useful activities in which you could take part.

If you are still not sure what you may be able to do, we would be delighted to invite you to visit us so you can find out more.

Home Visiting volunteers

If you agree that no one should have no one, have a friendly manner and can easily start and continue a conversation, you might be able to help a person in later life who doesn’t see many people as they find it difficult to get out of their home.

For more information about becoming a Home Visiting volunteer, please call Yvonne on 01403 751321.

Home from hospital volunteers

The Home from Hospital service provides practical support and assistance to vulnerable adults in their own homes for up to six weeks after they have left hospital.  The scheme aims to prevent vulnerable adults returning to hospital and helps to boost confidence and physical and mental wellbeing.

For information about becoming a Home from Hospital volunteer please contact Debbie on 01403 751321
