Volunteering roles are vast and can range from volunteering at the charity shops, helping in the cafe to painting the fences, gardening, dog walking, jet washing and much more. You may want to organise a Fundraising Event or an online auction, or work in a particular area such as on Reception.

Here we provide information on the type of roles we have available and an application form if we are currently recruiting that role. If you feel you could spare a few hours and help in any of the vacancies listed, please complete the application form and a member of the team will contact you.
