Volunteering gives me a sense of being part of my local community. It gives me a feeling that I'm helping people who otherwise don't really have any help available.”
Lizzie Laessing, volunteer

Typical roles include:

Support at home volunteer

Sometimes people need help in their own home for a few days or weeks – perhaps following a hospital stay, or if their usual carer is absent. Could you pop round for a cup of tea or help them with shopping?

Mobility aids volunteer

Your role could include:
• demonstrating how to use and maintain our wheelchairs and other mobility aids
• delivering and collecting equipment
• supporting other volunteers in the service.

Community Connector
