Become a Volunteer

 

Volunteering with Wivey Cares is a great way to give back to your community, as well as offering you an opportunity to meet new people, make new friends while using existing skills or learning new ones.

To become a volunteer you can complete the downloadable application form and return by e-mail or you can telephone us on 07508 331661.

We will invite you to a meeting to discuss what roles may suit you, whether your involvement is on an on/off task-set basis or in the form of a more regular contribution. As part of the process we will ask you to provide some form of ID and two references.

We need volunteers to cover Wiveliscombe as well as the Ten Parishes, and there are roles where you can work from home.

Typical roles are: befriending/keeping company, helping with shopping, accompanying clients to appointments and outings, help with paperwork and general advocacy, supporting carers.

We are also keen to hear your ideas as to what support Wivey Cares can offer in the future!

In return, we offer you the opportunity to learn new skills, attend training and support sessions.

Make your difference to the community of Wiveliscombe and the Ten Parishes.
