Volunteer with us


Our team of volunteers helps us to reach more people who need our support.  In return, our volunteers
benefit from valuable and rewarding work experience, training and development opportunities and
mentoring and support from our staff team.  

Click on the links below to see the types of volunteer roles we offer.   Volunteering with us is very
rewarding and we are flexible and open to what you are looking to get out of volunteering personally
and professionally so if you have any other ideas about the type of volunteering you'd like to do please
get in touch.  We are a friendly charity and would love to have you join our team.   

Volunteer opportunities

Could you help people with learning disabilities and autistic people
to volunteer?

We provide support for people with lived experience of our services to volunteer with us to develop
their own skills, confidence and experience.  One of the main ways we do this is by supporting people
to set up and run their own social or peer support group.  If you're interested in being part of this,
please get in touch.
