Would you like to improve your chances of getting a job, make new friends and change your life?

Volunteering offers an excellent opportunity to do all of this!

You’ll get to share your skills and expertise and enjoy giving something back to help others.

Many volunteers tell us they’ve dramatically improved their confidence and gone on to find work. Others have gained new friendship networks and no longer feel alone.

You can volunteer with us. Or we can help you find other volunteer opportunities in your local community.
For more information email Jocelyn Tilbrook at or call 0800 121 60 60.
