Volunteering Opportunities


The main role of the volunteers is to socialise with the residents by providing friendly conversation and companionship. Volunteers can also help to deliver activities such as quizzes, games, cake decorating and arts and crafts.


The residents love performances and we try to get as many societies and other clubs involved with our project. If you are part of a club or society please don't hesitate to contact us - it's a great way not only to bring a smile to someone's face but to practice in front of a very eager audience!

Location and Travel

Every week the Buddy Club emails volunteers a sign up sheet where they can reserve their space on the minibus!

You can also walk to Willowbrook from campus - walking directions!

Willowbrook, Glebe Close, Canley, Coventry, CV4 8DJ

Time Commitment

Sessions run once a week for one hour and 15 minutes on a Wednesday afternoon during terms 1 and 2.

We recommend volunteers try to make a regular commitment so you can really get to know the residents - the more sessions you attend the more you'll get out of the club.

Skills Required

No previous experience is required. All we ask is that you’re friendly, enthu­si­astic, and willing to chat and listen to residents.

Sign up

Sign-up is now open!

You will receive a weekly email with a link to the online sign up for the session that week. Places are capped due to space in the minibus and allocated on a first come first served basis.
