We believe that volunteering helps the volunteer just as much as the person they are helping. It keeps people active and agile, gets them out meeting new people and offers an opportunity to do something good for someone else or your local community.
Our volunteers support people in Bournemouth, Poole and Dorset. The support provided can either be one-off or on a regular basis.
Volunteers can support people with a range of activities including:
The Telephone Befriending service involves our volunteers calling a list of our clients over the phone to ensure they have a chat with a friendly voice.
The Walking Group supports those in later life and/ or with mobility issues who want some gentle exercise and social contact with others in outdoor settings.
Community Support Volunteers provide a little bit of extra support to some of our clients who have had contact with our advocacy or coaching services. People may need a little bit of practical help for a short time to help build their confidence.
Garden mentors support people referred to our Roots gardening scheme to help build their confidence in undertaking their tasks.
Charity shop volunteers support the day-to-day running of the shop including: collecting and sorting donations through to serving customers on the till.
Our volunteering roles are currently under review and more will be added in due course.
