Volunteering

Be part of something amazing
We want to hear from you, whatever your age, wherever you are, and whether you’re studying, employed or retired. A few hours a week will make a difference not only to the lives of the people we support, but to your life too.

Volunteering

Our commitment to you

We are proud to have achieved the Investing in Volunteers (IiV) award for the third time. This award shows our commitment to providing a quality experience for all of our volunteers.

What's in it for you?

By volunteering with us, you can:

  • have new experiences
  • build confidence and self esteem
  • use your skills and learn something new
  • be valued and appreciated
  • gain a sense of achievement
  • make a difference in the community
  • meet new people
  • have fun!

“It is a lot of fun volunteering at Quarriers and it feels great knowing that you are making a huge difference to people’s lives. I’m extremely glad I decided to volunteer as it is very rewarding and has been a fantastic experience.”

Volunteer

What you can bring

Every person who volunteers with us brings their own unique skills and qualities to the organisation. You can help the people we support to live fuller live by bringing:

  • specialist skills and knowledge
  • new ideas
  • time to focus on particular issue or task

Training

We provide training to make sure you are supported in your volunteering role. This ranges from volunteer induction to specific training you will need for your role. Our training will help you develop skills including knowledge of disability care and support, active listening and relationship building, all of which can be very useful in other aspects of life.

“The contribution that volunteers make is invaluable, and they have provided people we support with experiences that they may not have otherwise had.”
