Connect Volunteer

Getting You Started Guide

As a Connect volunteer you will support people to access and reconnect with the community and engage in social activities.

This support will help increase social connections and activities for people to help reduce loneliness and improve the mental wellbeing of the person needing support. 

The volunteer support for this activity is available either as a one-off or once a week for a maximum of 6 weeks and will take place in the person’s home or in their local community. 

You will support a range of people in diverse communities, and we ask that you make sure everyone feels supported, welcomed and valued for who they are.

Further information on how you can support people with accessibility needs and learn about different backgrounds and communities can be found in our Inclusion Hub.
