Volunteers

Volunteers are vital in helping to maintain and develop our services into the future. Our volunteers help people

  • To be socially active and to meet others locally
  • Keep their independence
  • Maintain and improve health and well being
  • Who are carers to have support and a break from caring
  • To access local health services

We are looking for people who are friendly and who are interested in talking to people and helping share interests and experiences. Volunteers need to be patient with a good sense of humour and who may also have practical skills to share.

We also need voluntary drivers who have a current, clean driving licence who are in good health and who are confident in driving a vehicle with an older or disabled person as a passenger.

To Become a volunteer

We will provide induction training which includes how to help people move safely; Basic Emergency Aid and Food Hygiene; Safeguarding Vulnerable Adults and Confidentiality

If you are interested becoming a volunteer with ADCA, please contact our Coordinator, Tracey Humphries, on: 07845 495973 or email: tlhumphries@outlook.com — she will arrange to meet with you to discuss your interest. Or call into the Day Club or Coffee Club for a chat with staff and our existing volunteers

The application process does include the requirement to under a DBS Criminal Record check and to provide the names of two referees as all our volunteers work with vulnerable adults
