We offer a variety of flexible volunteering roles in Plymouth and surrounding areas. Due to the nature of our work, volunteers undergo certain recruitment checks; this may include a standard or enhanced DBS check depending on the role, providing two references and undergoing an occupational health screen. We will provide you with the necessary support to ensure that this process is as smooth as possible.
You will find samples of our volunteer roles below. If you wish to share a special talent and don't find a role that interests you, please email and we can consider if any of our services could be enhanced by your talent.
