LJWB is proud of its strong, hard-working team of volunteers. We have a wide range of volunteering opportunities, whether you want to make new friends, develop new skills or give something back to your local area. You can support us, and make a difference to our community, by doing anything from helping out in our charity shop to visiting an older person at home, running your own computer training class or helping out at our allotment. However you’d like to get involved, we’d love to hear from you.
People choose to volunteer for a variety of reasons. For some it offers the chance to give something back to the community or make a difference to the people around them. For others it provides an opportunity to develop new skills or build on existing experience and knowledge. Regardless of the motivation, what unites them all is that they find it both challenging and rewarding.
We welcome everyone – from young people just starting out in the world of work to those with a lifetime’s wisdom to share. We also offer opportunities to young people as part of their Duke of Edinburgh award and at university students. Many find the volunteering experience is really useful in helping them get on their chosen career path.
Support and training
Our volunteers receive training for the role they choose alongside ongoing support – ensuring they are given the skills and guidance needed to make a difference within our organisation.
