Volunteers

We are fortunate to have the help of many volunteers, from a wide range of backgrounds and a variety of skills and life experiences. They help us to extend the services we provide and to deal more promptly with referrals. We recognise that volunteers can give credibility to our organisation – people giving freely of their time suggest that the work we do is valued in the community.  Many of the people who use our services may be isolated and sometimes have no-one involved in their lives who isn’t paid to be there.

Volunteers can spend time getting to know people, so that they are in a good position to help them express their views, and if necessary, speak up on their behalf. Volunteers help us raise awareness of advocacy in the communities we serve.

By becoming a volunteer, you will be giving time which will make a real difference to others. You will be able to spend that time with people when they most need support. They will want to share freely and openly,  issues which affect their daily lives. Many of our volunteers feel that this is a way of ‘giving something back’ to their community. It also brings volunteers into contact with lots of new people and in some cases has led to making new friends.

 

  • Are you looking for rewarding volunteer work where you can give something back to the community?
  • Would you like to receive free training to help people play a fuller part in the decisions which affect their lives?
  • Would you like to contribute to a lively team, learn new skills and boost your own confidence?
  • If you are keen to find out more then please get in contact with us!
