Can I volunteer?
Our volunteers come from a wide range of backgrounds.
Many have used our services in the past, or have a family member affected by our causes; others just want to give their time to help others in the local community.
To find out about what volunteering with us is like and the different opportunities we offer, take a look at our volunteer leaflet.
Whatever your background, we are keen to hear from you!
Volunteering gave me a safe place to find me again. I can be honest and open and don't need to hide my past.

You will be asked to provide the names of two referees and have an assessment meeting. We’ll supply you with an outline of the role you’ll be undertaking and a volunteer agreement. The object of this is to try, as far as possible, to match your motivation and expectations to what we need from a volunteer.
We’re committed to your wellbeing while you volunteer with us. Our aim is to ensure that your time, skills and commitment are used to the benefit of all, and that you enjoy the time you spend with us.
