Volunteering Opportunities


Due the expansion of our work we are in need of additional daytime and evening Welcomers. In particular we are looking for volunteers to cover Tuesday mornings and Thursday mornings.

We are looking for volunteers to offer a warm welcome by greeting clients, answering the phone and helping to keep our premises clean and tidy.

Often the first point of contact for clients, our Welcomers need to be sensitive and friendly, respectful and able to maintain confidentiality.

Gardeners/Garden Helpers

We are also looking for people with a keen interest in gardening or with a desire to volunteer outdoors to help us maintain our garden.

Times and days are flexible and may vary depending on the season!

If you have some time to give and feel you have the qualities we are looking for to volunteer in either of the above opportunities please contact us on 01423 881 881 or at
