Volunteer with Changing Lives

Corona Virus – How you can make a difference        

Amid all the distressing news around coronavirus, 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. During the evolving coronavirus pandemic we would ask that all volunteers follow the advice on our dedicated coronavirus webpage https://www.changing-lives.org.uk/news/coronavirus/ As a result of the high volume of volunteer applications during this time, please be aware that it will take more time to process your applications. We will resume normal service as soon as we can. Please continue to check our website for regular updates. Thank you to all the people who are already helping out in any way they can during this time.
