Inservice Support Volunteers
When We Need You
From 28/05/2012 onwards
We provide bespoke training to all our volunteers to provide the confidence to provide support to our service community. Volunteers provide as much time as they desire and are able to select the kind of help they wish to give. Our volunteers provide practical help including gardening, dog walking, transport, emotional help through befriending and being a listening ear, support young families through change or crisis. Our volunteers help in various ways with each client having unique needs. This branch also has opportunities to join the branch committee. This would involve fundraising for the branch as well as more strategic responsibilities.
