Volunteering

Volunteering plays a key role in building better communities. Give time to our residents and share your skills through volunteering.

Our volunteers play a key role in supporting residents. Volunteer with us and make a difference. Gain confidence, improve and share your skills.

Volunteers are individuals and groups from all walks of life who live and work locally and are prepared to give time and skills to help others.

Share your time

  • Do you have some spare time once a month?
  • If you are an individual wanting to volunteer, are you able to make a commitment for a minimum of three months?
  • If you are part of a group, do you have a day spare in which to clear a garden, decorate a flat, run an interview skills workshop?

If the answer is yes, whatever your skills and interests you can help make a difference as an individual, group or company.

Individuals

Individual volunteers can provide us with practical assistance or befriending, creating better and safer communities.

Practical assistance could be decorating, painting, woodwork or gardening. If you have any special skills or knowledge we would love to know about it!

A friendly face can make all the difference to someone who is alone and isolated. If you are interested in volunteering for a befriending programme, we will carefully match you up with someone who would love to receive your help.

If you would like to volunteer and can make a minimum commitment of three months, we want to hear from you.

Groups and companies

Employee volunteering provides us with a much-needed workforce, as well as being a great team building day for the group.

Employee volunteering was established in 1995. We have developed strong partnerships with companies such as the BBC, Disney and JP Morgan.

With more manpower and a nominal budget to cover equipment costs, a group can achieve a huge amount in a day.

Training

We offer free in-house training to all our volunteers. Please get in touch with us to register your interest!
