The involvement and commitment of volunteers is vital to the support we are able to offer to those using our services. They contribute enormously to our work and enable us to reach out and support many more people. Our volunteers come from a wide range of diverse backgrounds, contributing varied work and life experiences.
Volunteers don’t require formal qualifications but do need to have some important qualities. They need to be:
- Good listeners
- Interested in people
- Open and non-judgemental
- Committed to rights and equality
- Respectful towards the views of others
- Calm and patient
Volunteers receive free initial and on-going training. We support our volunteers through reviews, meetings, social events and newsletters.
Current Volunteer Roles
We have a range of opportunities for volunteers, please visit our Volunteer with ONSIDE pages for details of current opportunities, role descriptions and to apply.
We are urgently looking for PLUS volunteers. As a People Like Us (PLUS) Volunteer you will be joining a service that works across Worcestershire to support adults of all ages who are experiencing loneliness or isolation. PLUS enables individuals to connect with others by offering moral support and confidence building to support them to become more active and engaged in their communities. Please click here to apply to be a PLUS volunteer https://workwithonside.co.uk/jobs/plus-volunteer/
Along with 1 to 1 work we also have volunteer opportunities at our local Cafe supporting vulnerable adults who are on placement.
