“I get a feeling of satisfaction each time I volunteer, knowing that I have made a difference for a short while to someone's day with little effort required.” – Lynda, befriending volunteer

Volunteers are highly valued at Carers Count and we recognise the contribution they make to the running of our service on a daily basis.


Many of our staff volunteered for charities before they gained paid work with us and, since we set up in 2012/3, lots of volunteers for our organisation have gained the skills and experience needed to move into paid work of their choice.


We deliver a range of services to support carers looking after loved ones. This includes helping them to gain the information needed to navigate the health and social care system, self-advocate, build support networks and balance healthier lives. This means there is a range of volunteer opportunities available which can provide a useful training ground for future careers and help build confidence through being valued for the time spent volunteering.


We always need volunteers to support our various groups, such as Coffee and Chat, Tai Chi and Arts and Crafts. We need voluntary help in reception, within our Information and Advice team and in social media development. Volunteers are also required for involvement in local forums and local authority consultations.


Examples of our volunteer roles include:
