The volunteer program is currently suspended due to COVID-19 restrictions.

Volunteers play a vital role and are welcome to contribute to the smooth running of  the House.  Task roles are available for people seeking work experience or just looking for something rewarding to do. In return for volunteering we can support you in your job search, especially if you have been out of the workforce for some time and are now looking for an opportunity to get some current work experience. We have all been there! And if your working life is over but you’d like to make a contribution as a Digital Mentor on our Be Connected program or by performing tasks around the House you would be welcome to get in touch.
