Join our friendly team of volunteers of all ages and backgrounds. The benefits you gain from giving your time and skills to Caring Hands are as great as the benefit Caring Hands gets from the strong team of committed volunteers that keep us going.

We are so grateful to all our volunteers. There are currently fifteen regular volunteers, who help out in the kitchen, laundry and with maintenance, as well as several others who come for a short time or occasionally. Altogether we have calculated that they work 157 volunteer hours per week, which if paid at national living wage rates would make a contribution of £75,000 annually to Caring Hands. You are worth your weight in gold to us!
