Why volunteer?

People volunteer with us for many reasons.  Most often as a way of giving something back to their community, knowing that they have helped patients, their carers and family when they are feeling at their most vulnerable. Volunteering with us gives you:

  • Structure to your day
  • A challenge and an opportunity for personal development
  • An opportunity to learn new skills or to use your lifetime skills
  • An opportunity to meet others and to make social contact.
