VOLUNTEER & VACANCIES
Support us by volunteering!
As a registered charity we rely on volunteers to support our work. We have about 70 volunteers in different roles at the moment. Without our wonderful volunteers we simply wouldn't survive!
If you only have a little free time or expertise there are many ways that you can still assist us without having to make a regular commitment. Just let us know what you can offer. Every little bit really helps!
All volunteers will either receive training in advance, or on the job with an experienced volunteer.
