To conclude this series of posts on assessing if volunteering is the right option, here’s what to do next!
If you and the person that you are supporting decide that volunteering is the right option, please get in touch with the Volunteer Centre to discuss options prior to referral.

Please be aware that we like to manage expectations and if a client wishes to volunteer in a particular area, it does not mean there will be an appropriate role e.g. a post office, construction site, retail shop or accountants would not be a volunteering placement as they are profit-making businesses.
There are also some popular areas we don’t have roles for such as animals or catering.
Just give us a ring and we will do our best to help.
To assist in an appropriate referral ensure the Volunteer Centre is given relevant information. (With your client’s permission)
There is also a WEB SITE where you can see what benefits there are to volunteering and get some ideas about the types of volunteering opportunities out there. Just CLICK on:
