There are a variety of ways that you might consider donating your time to support our work. For many volunteering is a way of giving back to an organisation that may have assisted them or a family member. For others it’s a ‘feel good’ factor knowing that they are making a difference. Whatever your motivation we would welcome you with open arms.

Our major event where we need every volunteer possible is our Annual Appeal. The week long activity culminates in a Street Day across the county and having communities out and about wearing our lovely orange colours, shaking buckets not only raises money but also awareness.

There are also on-going local activities that you may be interested in. These range from assisting at land and water based exercise classes to hosting peer support groups, popping into our Regional Office to provide support etc.
