Volunteer your time to change lives in Southend - including yours

Learn skills to support vulnerable people in your community

Join our health and social care volunteer training and help those who need it most

If you are great with people and want to do something rewarding for yourself and others, our fully-funded 4-6 week training programme is designed to provide the key care techniques you need to volunteer in the Health and Social Care sector. You’ll gain essential, transferable skills that will benefit you both as a volunteer and in your wider life - we’ll even help with your CV and interview techniques.

We’re looking for people who are caring, compassionate and put others at the heart of everything they do. You can help bring dignity and independence to vulnerable people in their own homes, care homes, supported housing environments or day care.

Whether you can spare an hour or two a week, or want to give back on a more frequent basis, there are thousands of people in Southend who are elderly or have special needs who require everyday support to retain their quality of life. Join our programme today and we can guarantee an interview for a volunteering role upon completion.
