Lots of support and encouragement is available to help you volunteer and they are always interested in your ideas!

Volunteers are needed to help with existing and new activities with a special focus on health and wellness. You will interact with existing and new service users to ensure they are having a good experience, perhaps have a chat and a cuppa with people afterwards and offer social contact and connection to those who need it. Times and days for volunteering will vary and are flexible depending on when activities occur and your availability.
