A Little of Your Time Can Make a Big Difference

Volunteer with Inspire and give something back to your local community

How we Support

"I first volunteered to be a befriender two years ago now. It has been brilliant - I've made a friend for life."

Michael, who befriends Malcolm

Volunteers are an integral part of our work at Inspire and help us provide person-centred services to the people we support in a variety of ways.

With a little time, you can make a big difference. Whether you would like to help on a regular basis or just have a few hours on a one-off occasion to help at a specific event then we have a role for you.

Our volunteer befrienders spend time with the people we support on a 1-1 basis, enjoying shared interests and hobbies. We match our befriending pairs following a comprehensive process where we consider personalities and interests. Full training and ongoing support is provided.

Our ad-hoc volunteers help raise the profile of the organisation and vital funds towards our work by helping marshal running events, assisting with bag packs, shaking buckets at public occasions or serving meals at our Supper Clubs.

Volunteering is not only beneficial for Inspire, it gives you the opportunity to get involved with the local community, try out new activities and get the satisfaction of helping others.

Support. Empower. Inspire.
