Join our team

We often hear from our Wellbeing Volunteers about the difference volunteering makes to their own wellbeing as well as helping boost that of the people they support.

By joining us as a Wellbeing Volunteer, you can choose to get involved with any of our current opportunities or give each of them a go if you wish to. Whether you love having a chat, providing practical support or just helping someone in your neighbourhood, we have something that will work for you.

Become a Wellbeing Volunteer

As a Wellbeing Volunteer, you can get involved as a Buddy, Connector or Responder, or all three. Whatever time you have to give would be hugely appreciated and will go a long way in supporting our mission to help people live well at home. Take a further look at what you could be doing as a Wellbeing Volunteer below or download our role description. 

Wellbeing Responder

Sometimes, we need a little practical support. If you could help someone do their shopping, pick up a prescription or do a small household task, this opportunity could be for you. It doesn’t require a regular time commitment and asks you to travel in your local area.

Wellbeing Buddy

Do you love a good chat? Lots of people we support are lonely or isolated and are really keen to have a regular friendly chat and some support. You would be matched with someone for 12 weeks and either meet them or call them each week. This opportunity involves a short weekly commitment and can work around your schedule. If you’re volunteering over the phone, you can also do it from the comfort of your own home.

Wellbeing Connector

If you are passionate about your local community and want to be part of our helping hand to connect people to support in the voluntary and community sector, this opportunity might be for you. You could help us by being a friendly face at our our information stations and signpost people to tailored support for them. This opportunity is face-to-face, requires some travel to our information stations, but can be adapted to suit your schedule.
