Make a difference to vulnerable people in your community 

At Your Voice Counts we believe that having a voice is essential to well-being, to accessing opportunities, and to maintaining choice and control over our lives. A key part of achieving this mission is our group of dedicated volunteers.

  • Helping out at our drop-ins, or with one of the groups we support 

  • Supporting people with learning disabilities to get out and about to access the community 

  • Helping us in the office with things like administration 


The people we’re looking for will: 


  • Have strong listening and communication skills 

  • Be able to build strong relationships and support others to do so 

  • Be patient and supportive in nature 

  • Be passionate about our organisation’s mission and end embody our values
