Volunteer

Volunteers are a huge part of the team at Trafford Carers, we simply couldn’t do what we do without them! Volunteers help out across the organisation and there are a range of opportunities to get involved.

As well as helping carers get the support they deserve, volunteering is a great way of meeting people, developing skills and being a valued part of the community. There are a number of ways that people can get involved as volunteers, including:

  • Running a group or activity
  • Supporting a group or activity
  • Delivering counselling sessions
  • Helping at one of our charity shops
  • Doing admin in the office
  • Fundraising and marketing
  • On our board of trustees

We are committed to equal opportunities and believe in the value of diversity. For more information on getting involved as a volunteer, including any questions regarding accessibility and adjustments we can make to welcome all volunteers, please contact our Volunteer Co-ordinator, Flo Goddard on florence.goddard@traffordcarerscentre.org.uk or call 0161 8482400.
