What the Role Involves

You should feel confident in your ability to communicate with all sorts of people, be non-judgmental, have patience and initiative and treat people with respect.

Volunteers can also support our fundraising activities and we encourage people to get involved with our inclusive social activities.

Volunteers are expected to contribute around 4/6 hours fortnightly. After initial training you should be able to make a commitment of at least 6 months depending upon the post you apply for.

The work is very rewarding and provides opportunity to develop skills and expertise in advocacy. Many volunteers have gone on to secure work in related fields.
