Detailed description

We have a range of volunteer roles available within our services including:


-       Supporting a young person who is currently in a children’s home or foster placement by being a listening ear and a positive role model. This role is usually on one weekend day a month of your choice and includes doing a fun activity with your young person that you will both enjoy. This role sits within our Children and Young People’s services.

This role forms a valuable part of our Supported Hospital Discharge Service.


If you can spare an hour or more on either a monthly, fortnightly or weekly basis, we can match you according to your qualities and interests with as few or as many hours as you would like to offer.


Full training is provided and all mileage expenses are paid at 45p a mile.


We would love to hear from you!
