Could you volunteer with us?
We always love to welcome new volunteers to Wakefield
James 2, Director of Wakefield Samaritans
How can you help?
There are so many things that keep our branch going. While you may be looking for the kind of role that you hear the most about, such as being a listening volunteer, there are so many more things you can do to support us.
Our charity shop always needs volunteers to keep the shop open. This involves handling money, moving and pricing stock, deciding what can be sold, rearranging things and helping customers. If you are a friendly person who wants to help, you're exactly what we need!
If talking on the phone isn't for you or you have an impairment that makes this difficult for you but you still would like to volunteer, written word may be for you! Answering emails is just as important as our work on the phones and we value anyone who volunteers for us. Could it be you?
Every penny we get to support our work is well needed. Our volunteers may support us only in this way by organising events and helping to carry them out. An organised and creative individual can make a huge difference to our fundraising team. We need you!
