We are absolutely reliant upon volunteers to change young lives and futures. Your skills and experience and your desire to help are key to the support we can offer. We need all sorts of volunteers and from all ages - peer volunteers and befrienders to mature volunteers with packs of life experience and skills to share.
Our volunteers always tell us the receive so much more than they give in terms of both their own personal (and professional) development and the satisfaction of making such an important contribution to someone’s life.
Full training and induction is given and all expenses are payable. A satisfactory DBS and references will be required.
