Why volunteer?

Volunteering is a great way to meet new people, learn new skills, and give back to your local community. Without the support of our committed volunteers we wouldn't be able to offer the number of services that we do.

Our current volunteers often comment on how rewarding they find volunteering with us, and how beneficial it's been to their own wellbeing.

Who can volunteer?

Almost anyone can become a volunteer. We have a wide range of roles which suit different people and different skills.

However, our volunteers must:

  • be sympathetic to the needs of peopled aged 50+
