What Volunteers say:
"I feel Assist is like coming to a happy family and I get a lot of satisifaction from seeing that what we do matters ".
Volunteers do not need any formal qualifications, just time to spare, a caring nature and an interest in the work we do in supporting older people in the community. A few hours a week can be very rewarding for volunteers and can make a big difference in someone’s life.
Potential volunteers will have to provide two references and depending on the role they might need to have a DBS check done. They will receive induction training and ongoing support. We also hold a regular support/social group for volunteers to get together.
For more information about volunteering please email or telephone first to see what is available and if suitable then you can download a form and return.
"I changed career because of Assist as I enjoyed working with
