Volunteering With Us

Wigan and Leigh Carers Centre

What is Volunteering?

What is volunteering? Volunteering is offering your time and skills to help others and is open to everyone. It offers you experience, new skills, an opportunity to get out of the house and meet others,an opportunity to help and support others or give something back.

What skills do I need? Do you enjoy chatting over a brew, do you understand what carers may face? No previous experience is needed, just your commitment, good communication skills and a non-judgmental approach.

Why volunteer? In return you gain useful skills and experience, support and training and out-of-pocket expenses. Maybe you are looking to keep busy, gain experience or understand what carers are going through and want to give your time and experiences to help others. you can offer as much or as little time as you have (even a few hours a month) and you can be support carers in your local area.
