Volunteers support every aspect of our work

Volunteering with us, whether it is at public events to raise awareness or helping out with admin and reception work, requires sensitivity and a non-judgmental attitude.


You will also need an ability to respect client confidentiality. Our volunteers are, ‘people people,’ with a positive attitude and a belief that everyone can change their lives for the better with the right support.

Join us and you will be part of a vibrant working environment, all while learning new skills, gaining work experience, and having access to free ongoing training and support.
