What volunteers say


Volunteering make a big difference to us and can be good for you too...

Volunteering can

  • a positive impact on your health and wellbeing
  • opportunities to meet new people
  • a way that you can give back to your community and make a difference
  • develop new skills or brush up on existing ones
  • a route to employment

Here’s what some of our volunteers say

"It makes me feel valued to be part of the team helping people deal with the difficulties that come with being a carer" Sue, telephone befriender and office support

"I see how grateful my carer is, which in turn gives me pleasure and makes me feel good about myself" Jill, dementia befriender

"I feel privileged to spend time with some truly amazing people, listening to their stories, really getting to know them and having a laugh. Helping out at the group really makes my month" Moona, group support
