Ways to volunteer

We could not do what we do without our tremendous volunteer force and the many hours they dedicate to us.

People choose to volunteer for a variety of reasons. For some it offers the chance to give something back to the community or make a difference to the people around them. For others it provides an opportunity to develop new skills or build on existing experience and knowledge. It is a great way to meet new people and have fun too!

We are currently looking for retail assistants, administrative support and qualified counsellors but we are always more than happy to hear from anyone that has a skill or idea that could help our charity, do get in touch
