Volunteering FAQs

Do you have a minimum period that you require your volunteers to commit for?

We understand that peoples' futures can be uncertain but, when possible, we ask for an initial 12 month commitment, which is reviewed after 6 months.

Do you take students as volunteers?

Yes. Our weekly evening social group and Wednesday day time cafe usually fit in with the term timetable. The role of befriending, however, needs a longer commitment than term weeks. (We normally expect an initial 12 months commitment if possible.)

Do you reimburse any expenses incurred?

Yes we do. If you keep receipts you can claim any expenses incurred in your capacity as a volunteer.

Do you have guidelines to help me know what is expected of me?

Yes. We have written guidelines for all our volunteer roles as well as a volunteer policy document. You will receive a Welcome Pack once you become a volunteer.
