Become one of our Volunteer Centre Mentors
The Volunteer Centre is looking for volunteer mentors to support some of our clients into volunteering. We support a variety of people to begin volunteering and some of these people may need a little bit of extra help to get started.
We will provide you with full training to give you the skills and confidence to help somebody find, and begin a meaningful volunteer placement.
