We Need You!

Volunteers are at the heart of our organisation and as such our aim is to create a vibrant new world for volunteers.

Where people are valued for the time they give, are supported to take on high levels of responsibilityin their placements, and where people have the choice to progress as much or as little as they chose.

We recognise that each and every volunteer is an individual with their own personality, life history and aspirations for the future.

We therefore offer a unique tailor made, good quality and worthwhile volunteering programme to each volunteer which is based on individual progression at a rate to suit you.

As well as a good quality volunteer placement, this may also include the following:
  • Your own volunteer coach
  • A regular motivational assessment
  • Your own volunteer action plan Qualifications
  • 1 - 1 Support
  • Access to regular Peer Support Networks
  • Progression routes within the company
Volunteering Point at you

Of course, you may want to volunteer without having to engage in a structured programme, which is fine. All that we ask is that you agree to attend a regular 1-1 session on top of your voluntary placement with your key-worker to ensure that you are happy, safe, and feel useful in your role. As a minimum, each Volunteer will receive:

  • Out of pocket expenses
  • Childcare expenses (depending on funding)
  • Key worker
  • Regular Support (1-1, group, and end of line)
  • Access to our Volunteer Progression Programme (optional)
  • An Induction
Before deciding on whether volunteering is right for you, you may have questions that need answering. Please see our frequently asked questions sheet. If you do not find the question you would like answering, please do not hesitate to contact us.
