Volunteering enables supporters to become more involved with a charity that is close to their heart. It gives people the opportunity to make friends, to learn new skills and to represent the Charity in a more formal way.

People donate their time for a number of reasons, but the most common is: personal satisfaction, to do something worthwhile, to be active or to have social contact.

We have an amazing team of volunteers who work incredibly hard on our behalf. Together they cover 2,636 square miles between them. That’s a big challenge as you can imagine and we urgently need others to join us.

We are currently looking for volunteers in the West Bay, Lyme Regis, Charmouth and Bridport areas of Dorset for the following roles:
