The ever increasing demands on our service means we constantly need more volunteers. If you have any spare time, no matter how little, and think you would like to help, HANDS would welcome your support. No special skills are needed, just the desire to give friendly, practical help to others in need.
You do not need to make a regular commitment - you can help just as and when you feel free. Only on our befriending scheme, assisting in the office or on the shopping bus are volunteers asked to help on a regular basis.
All volunteers are required to be checked by the Disclosure and Barring Service, which HANDS will arrange on completion of the first interview. Volunteer drivers will require a full UK driving licence and comprehensive insurance. Mileage can be claimed at 40p a mile.
You will find volunteering with HANDS is fulfilling and life-enhancing for you and for our clients.
If you would like to volunteer for HANDS, please email our volunteer coordinator and we will reply as soon as possible.
