Full-time volunteers can support an individual to live independently in their own home or to study at University. Volunteers can also be placed at organisations, helping them to provide an enhanced service and additional support to their beneficiaries.

For over 50 years, our full-time volunteers have been supporting people of all ages in the social care sector who require additional support  to live on their own terms. They do this through flexible support of 35 hours per week for 6 to 12 months.  Volunteer support can be paid for through personal health budgets and direct payments.

If you are thinking about setting up your own volunteer programme, we have a free online toolkit to help you get started.
