Why volunteer?

Volunteering is a great way to meet new people, learn new skills, and support the work we do in the community.

Who can volunteer?

Anyone can be a volunteer. We have a wide range of roles which suit different people and different skills.

How much time do I need to give?

Our roles are varied, so whether you only have a few hours to spare, or a whole day, please get in touch and we can find a role to suit you. It takes time to recruit, induct and train our volunteers, which is why we ask for a minimum commitment of six months.

  • Improving your CV
  • Increased confidence
  • Relevant training courses will be provided
  • Regular supervision and support given
  • Meeting new people
  • Supporting older clients

Covid-19 safety measures

All of our roles, and new starters, are risk-assessed if the role is office-based or involves visiting clients. Our offices have sanitising stations and a reduced capacity to maintain social distancing, and when current Government guidelines allow client visits, our volunteers are provided with appropriate PPE. During lockdowns and peaks in hospital admissions, we have suspended visits to clients' homes.
