Volunteering with ADCA

Volunteers

Volunteers are vital in helping ADCA maintain and develop our services into the future.

Our volunteers help people

  • to be socially active and to meet others locally
  • to keep their independence
  • to maintain and improve health and well being
  • to access local health services and activities
  • who are carers to have support and get a break from caring

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 may also have practical skills to share.

We also need voluntary drivers with 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

You will find an application form at the end of our Volunteer Policy, which spells out in detail how we work with our volunteers.

All volunteers receive induction training, which will include, among other things:

  • How to help people move safely
  • Basic Emergency Aid
  • Food Hygiene
  • Safeguarding Vulnerable Adults
  • Confidentiality

If you think you would like to volunteer with ADCA, please contact our Coordinator, Tracey Humphries, on: 07845 495973 or email: tlhumphries@outlook.com. She will arrange to meet you to discuss how you could help.

Alternatively, call in to the Tuesday Day Club or Friday Coffee Club in the Public Hall Annexe for a chat with staff and our existing volunteers.

Note that the application process includes a requirement to undergo a DBS Criminal Record check and to provide the names of two referees as all our volunteers work with vulnerable adults.

Expenses

In certain situations (fuel for driving, for example), expenses incurred by volunteers can be claimed back from ADCA.

If you need to claim expenses, download and complete the Expenses Form (see link below) and return it to Tracey Humphries.
