Volunteering Opportunities

They have opportunities for people dependent on their availability, from a one off voluntary visit, through to a regular weekly commitment.

One-offs are usually a project to improve the environment for the residents, such as a creating a themed area in the garden.

Weekly commitments would involve running an activity for the residents, this can be linked to the volunteer’s own hobbies and interests.
