Volunteering with Us

Volunteering with Us

We value our volunteers since they play such an important role in our organisation.

Whatever your skills or interests, we are confident that we can find a rewarding volunteer role to suit you, in an inclusive and supportive environment.

Even giving 2 hours on an ad-hoc basis, or a morning or an afternoon of your time each week, will benefit us immensely.

Here are a few of the reasons individuals volunteer for us:

  • To support an important cause

  • To make new friends

  • To learn new skills such as problem solving, customer service, merchandising and  teamwork

  • To gain work experience for their CV and enhance employability

  • To do something rewarding with their spare time

  • To share their skills with others

  • To keep active

  • To reduce isolation and improve overall wellbeing

  • It can fit around your personal and work commitments

  • It can also sometimes lead on to paid work in retail, customer service or other sectors.
