Edition: July 2023
You might think that you don’t have the time to volunteer but there are so many opportunities that could be a perfect fit for you. From developing skills and making new friends, to unlocking new opportunities, volunteering gives back a whole lot of benefits.
We have something for all types of availability.
From regular roles to one off or ad hoc opportunities. You could be operating from home, in offices and museums, in the community or the great outdoors.
Here are just some current and recent opportunities on our website:
Find opportunities in local museums and galleries or help with Root and Branch Theatre.
Support men’s mental health by leading group walks with MenWalkTalk.
Tackle social isolation and host an annual tea party with Re-engage, restore someone’s social confidence with Horsham District Befriends or offer regular sociable days for small groups at home for Tapestry Day Club (pictured top).
How volunteers can help
As a SECAmb Community First Responder, Sally (pictured) makes a huge difference. She
commented: “By volunteering you could save a life with each call.”
Volunteers can help in many ways:
- Great befrienders can help reduce isolation and anxiety and aid social inclusion
- Quality admin support is essential to ensure incredible charities, organisations and services can function properly
- Trustees bring their passion and expertise to champion their causes
- You might transform your local environment and see green spaces blossom
- You could be helping the next generation at one of the great youth providers
Horsham District Voluntary Sector Support service works with charities and community groups to provide volunteering opportunities. If you want to make a difference locally, please get in touch.
