Volunteer with us

Volunteers are a vital part of the work we do

Almost all of our volunteering roles are about working directly with the people we support.

If you are patient, empathetic and understanding, then we’d love to hear from you.

Everyone has something to offer, so don’t be put off getting in touch if you don’t have specific experience.

You can contact us on 01227 760 078 or email us on volunteer@porchlight.org.uk

If you can't see a volunteer role above, please download and complete our volunteering application form, and send it back to us at volunteer@porchlight.org.uk

Why volunteer with Porchlight

Volunteering with Porchlight isn't a one-way street. All of our volunteers are offered the same training opportunities as staff. We really want to help our volunteers gain valuable experience and develop their skills.

Some of our volunteer roles may require you to have a DBS check.

Our volunteering roles can be quite flexible and we do offer some limited roles outside of working hours.


Knowing that you’ve helped people and made those personal connections is really rewarding.
