What we can offer you

Volunteering in your area will give you the chance to:

What you can expect

We'll give you all the training and support you need to do your role.

You will help people in your local area, which could involve having a chat over a cup of tea, ensuring a person’s home is safe for them to come back to or accompanying them to a doctor’s appointment.

You will join a national team of hundreds of volunteers who give their time to our independent living service.
