Volunteering

Holbeck Together could not deliver its essential services without its valuable team of volunteers. Volunteering brings a wealth of benefits to communities and individuals. We aim to enhance the skills of all our volunteers and give them a positive, enjoyable experience. 

Current opportunities

We require volunteers across a range of services including catering/food provision, transport, befriending, social activities, retail and more. We are currently looking for people to fill the following volunteer roles. Click on the links to find out more about the requirements of each role and apply by completing the below application form. 

What we need

Time commitment is flexible and we aim to match applicants with the right volunteer roles based on their availability, skills and experience. You do not need any formal qualifications – we are looking for people who want to help the older people and families we support and training is provided for all volunteers. We cover out of pocket expenses and the cost of DBS checks. You can contact us if you have any questions or would like an informal chat about volunteering/opportunities.

Meet our volunteers

I live on my own so it helps me to avoid social isolation and improve my mental wellbeing. It’s given me a purpose.

We like to see people’s faces – we get joy out of seeing them so excited. We get a lot out of it as well – everybody wins.

It’s lovely for people to see a friendly face and have a two minute chat – we could be the only people they’re seeing that day.
