Frequently raised concerns
“I don’t have much time to spare.”
Don’t worry! Even if it sounds cliché, just an hour a week truly does make a difference.
“I’m young; I lack the experience needed to fill the role available.”
What matters to us is not your age, but rather your passion and desire to make a difference in your community.
“I don’t live locally – I would struggle to pay for travel expenses.”
We don’t want you to struggle financially whilst helping us – so we reimburse the agreed travel expenses incurred.
“I’m unsure about exactly what I would be doing.”
We ensure that all volunteers are properly inducted in line with our procedures. Additionally, all potential volunteers are welcome to come in for a taster and see how everything works.
I want to be a volunteer – how do I start?
Simply request a volunteer application form (either in person or using the contact form below), fill it in and return it to one of the offices/email us. Once we have received your application we will invite you to come into the office and have a chat about the role you wish to fill and go over the application form. Once the application has gone through the office manager and looked at by the board of directors, the induction process will begin.
