We are the main link for the community with local and national governmental bodies, health and social authorities and third sector organisations.
We support members of the community who require assistance as a result of ill health infirmity or disability whether arising from a physical or mental cause, age, isolation, financial hardship or other disadvantage.
Give assistance to develop the capacity and skills of members of the community so as to make them better able to identify and meet their needs themselves and so participate more fully in society
We are also a resource to receive and disseminate information in furtherance of these objects.
Information for volunteers
We have different teams of volunteers working on different platforms. This allows you as a volunteer to match your skills to a volunteering duty. We will also train you for your role, so that you feel confident in your volunteering.
Because we have many platforms, some of which are home based and other in the community. We are able to find you a volunteering role which matches your needs, abilities and personal restrictions perfectly.
