As one of our Visitors you can play a key role in getting help to those most in need of our support. They notice the things people forget to tell us in their grant applications – the cracked window pane, the faulty boiler, the carpet with a hole in it, the broken spectacles or lack of warm clothing in winter. The face-to-face support that our Volunteer Visitors provide ensures that we offer a priceless lifeline to some of the most vulnerable people in our communities.
Read more about what becoming a volunteer involves. Our Volunteer Visitors also improve their existing skills and gain new ones through their volunteering experience.
My visitor is absolutely excellent. More than anything it is a great comfort to have a familiar face and a listening ear
Find out more about becoming a Volunteer Visitor by visiting our Volunteering Skills and Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) page where you will also be able to register your interest in volunteering with us. We have volunteers in England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, Republic of Ireland and France (who provide support for British ex-pats).
We are proud to have been awarded Investing in Volunteers accreditation. This is a national quality standard awarded for organisations who can evidence good practice in their volunteering programmes.
