Volunteering

Our volunteers contribute to a better quality of social life for our Service Users and make a positive difference by giving some of their time each week to help facilitate our drop-in service, social activities, fundraising activities etc.

We know that volunteering changes people's lives in many ways - those who volunteer their time benefit as well as those who receive our service. By giving some of your time, you can make a real difference to someone else's life.
