 Volunteer Recruitment

Volunteering Poster

Volunteers form an essential part of our team and we welcome your interest. 

Whether or not you have a disability or experience of caring for someone with a disability, we would be pleased to hear from you.

More than anything we are looking for people who are prepared to make a regular commitment to help us and are willing to learn the skills we need. 

We offer training and mentoring. Successful applicants will be invited to join our induction programme so they understand the nature of our work and are well prepared.

In return we aim to give our volunteers the opportunity to develop new skills, to meet new people, to be part of a dedicated team and to make a difference.

Reasonable travel expenses will be reimbursed.

For an informal chat  please contact our Volunteer Co-ordinator, Gemma.

Our Aims To make our clients feel welcome and listened to.  Clients are free to contact us, no matter how large or small the problem may be.   Our first priority is to reduce any immediate stress.  Next, to look for ways to improve quality of life through maximising income, seeking support or equipment from other organisations.  Where we can we may also suggest coping strategies and preparations for any future challenges.  Finally, we want to be available if more challenges arise.
