What is expected of me?
Our volunteers time commitment can vary depending upon their role. This could mean they work with us on a daily, weekly or monthly basis. We encourage volunteers to stay with us for a minimum period of six months or the duration of the project they are involved in, to make full use of the training and support offered.
