We know that not everyone has the equipment or confidence to use digital technology. We can provide support, including training and even access to devices to ensure that you can help to shape our organisation from the comfort of home.

What our current volunteers are saying
"Having a volunteer voice means being able to make a suggestion, share a thought or an idea, and take part in many other ways.
We all have an opportunity to share, in our own unique way, and become part of a solution and celebrate in success." - Maggi
