Volunteering   
                       We always need lots of volunteers and we welcome newcomers to our band of invaluable helpers. Our clubs and groups depend on volunteers to run them and we really appreciate all their commitment and energy.

Have a look at all the different ways that you could help and get in touch if you want to know more. You can phone the Society on 01382 227101 and ask for our Volunteer Co-ordinator.

Club helpers and leaders

If you look at our clubs and groups section, you'll see that we run a variety of different activities - and we're always open to suggestion for new things. All of these need volunteers - to bring some of our clients to the Society, to make tea, to organise and run the activity, to chat and generally keep things going - in other words, to join in.


Befriending

We have quite a number of elderly clients who are rather isolated because of their sight problems or mobility, or maybe a lack of confidence. Befrienders are always needed to visit clients, have a chat and generally help bring a change in what can be a long, lonely day. Some clients like going out for a while, some just want to have a chat and a cup of tea in their home. The client and the befriender work this out together, as well as the length and frequency of visits. It is really like having a new friend to get to know.
