You can transform lives…

“It means a lot to me being a volunteer for Faithworks Wessex, as it gives me the opportunity to do what I really like. And also I can see your hard work for the public and it is rewarding being a part of it. I have also gained my motivation back to move on with my studies. So YES I am a very happy volunteer”

We are always looking for more people to join the team. Simple practical things can often make a huge difference to our clients lives such as visiting an older, isolated person at home, meeting up for coffee with a carer, doing a regular night shift at Sleepsafe (emergency bed provision for those sleeping rough).

Particular roles we are looking to fill are

• Befrienders – face-to-face and telephone befriending

• Volunteer drivers

• Budget Coaches possibly with the opportunity to train as Debt Advisors

• SMILE family supporters


What you can expect

• One of our team will contact you for a chat to find out what you would like get involved with

• We will book you on to our Basic Skills training (the training takes about 2 and a half hours)

• We will apply for your references

• If you will be working with clients, we will book you in for a DBS check (this takes about 15 minutes to do)

• We will put you in touch with the Coordinator of the project you would like to get involved with for a chat about how you can get started!
