Volunteering for Home & Communities is interesting, rewarding and good fun!

We need volunteers to help in many areas, for example to support people who live alone and have recently been in hospital. The service needs more volunteers to help and assist with this project.

  • Could you make that difference by making sure that someone is settled back home?
  • Could you see they have the shopping they need or help with a bit of light housework?
  • Could you help them by simply collecting their prescriptions?

Social Events

We hold a lot of social events, including Tea Parties and Coffee Corners..  They give our clients the chance to meet other people in similar situations, it's where they can make new friends and meet new people.


This is a personal telephone befriending service where clients receive a regular call frim tnhe same volunteer to talk for as long as the client needs.

Car drivers

If you own a car, we are looking for volunteers (also called Transport Befrienders) to transport older people to and from medical appointments and to and from our services. We cover out of pocket expenditure with help towards fuel at 40p per mile.  

This role can be tailored around your spare time and the team will normally arrange your working times a week in advance.

Shopping Befrienders

We are receiving more and more requests for this service.  The job is to carry out shopping trips on behalf of older people on the Wirral.  This role can often be fitted in around your own shopping requirements and normally only consists of small amounts of shopping from one shop.  Unless you indicate otherwise, the shopping will normally be for someone who lives locally to yourself.
