Volunteering for Carers Count

“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

Come and join our team - we need more caring volunteers! 


We are incredibly blessed at Carers Count to have an amazing and dedicated team of volunteers. We love to show our appreciation for their continued support and invaluable contribution. 


Many of the Carers Count team volunteered for charities before moving into paid work with us. Since setting up in 2012/13, lots of volunteers for our organisation have gained the skills and experience needed to move into paid work of their choice.


From helping you gain valuable new skills and experience to boosting your confidence. There are so many benefits to giving your time to help others. 
In addition to the feel-good factor that comes from helping others, studies have shown that volunteering also improves volunteers' well-being! 
We are always in need of 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 also play an essential part in our service feedback forums and local authority consultations.


If you would like to support unpaid carers in Kirklees, we have a number of different roles for volunteers at Carers Count. 


Some of the roles we have are below, but please ring for a chat if you would like to know more:

Training is provided for all roles. And although experience is always helpful - it is not always essential.


If you are currently or have been a carer in the past and would like to get involved, you would be very welcome.


To find out more about these roles or to discuss where you think you could help, please contact our volunteer co-ordinator on 0300 012 0231
