Volunteer with Changing Lives

Volunteering is a rewarding way to spend your spare time. By volunteering for Changing Lives, you’ll be joining a network of life-changers, all working together to empower people to change their lives for the better. You’ll be made to feel very welcome and part of the bigger picture.


Coronavirus – How you can make a difference

Amid the ongoing Coronvirus pandemic, there is some positivity to come out of it as communities rally together. We have had a number of requests from people asking how they can support us and the vulnerable people we work with at this time.

There are many ways that you can volunteer your time with us – from making cups of tea to chatting to the people we work with. If you would like to register your interest, please email sead.masic@changing-lives.org.uk, or call 07812 672 691, and one of the team will get back to you.

At Changing Lives, we take the wellbeing of our volunteers extremely seriously, so please be aware that you will be asked a number of questions (according to Government guidelines) before being able to volunteer with us.

Thank you to all the people who are already helping out in any way they can during this time.
