What skills are you looking for in a volunteer?

Some roles may need special or technical skills and knowledge, others may require good personal skills and abilities such as empathy and concern for the welfare of others.

In many cases however, the skills you will need can be developed while volunteering, with help from a supervisor or manager and other volunteers and staff.

We do offer training and support for our roles, take a look at our skills and training page for more information.
