Assist is staffed by approved volunteers who undergo background checks and training. Our volunteers are ordinary people who have good solid life experience and who can offer encouragement, friendship and sound common sense advice where it is needed.
If you would like to be involved in Assist as a volunteer, please feel free to get in touch. We will ask you to complete an application form and all of our volunteers are formally approved and DBS checked. Our volunteers receive induction training and the opportunity to attend other relevant courses that they might find useful. We usually have a team meeting about once a month and our volunteers are supported by a mentor in all their volunteering activity.
