VOLUNTEERING

Being a volunteer with us will give you a real sense of purpose!
Make a real difference in your local community, be valued as part of a dedicated team, form new friendships, utilise existing skills and gain some new skills.

A volunteer can do almost anything, as long as it is helping others!
Examples are Minibus Drivers, Passenger Escorts, Local Coordinators, Administrators, Planners and Event Managers. We also seek people who might want to be a Trustee, which could be anything from Honorary Secretary to Chairperson. Come and talk to us, then you decide.

How much time you volunteer is absolutely up to you!
3 or 4 hours a month is normally the minimum for Minibus Drivers and Passenger Escorts – just one trip to the shops and back! Other volunteers often give more but it is up to you.

You only need to bring your cheerful disposition!
We are looking for great interpersonal skills, friendly personalities and team players. Additional role specific skills can be sorted if you come on board. Whatever the role, we provide training and on-going support.
