An important part of SUSO‘s success is our wonderful team of volunteers. They help with a whole range of things, and SUSO is a supportive and friendly environment for people dropping in and volunteers alike.

20170701_162040Whether you want to help others, gain experience, improve skills or meet new people – from Facebook to fundraising to drop in support – we have a whole range of volunteering opportunities to suit your needs.

You will be helping people to participate fully in a whole range of group activities such as photography, arts, computers, relaxation, skills training, discussions and encouraging them to be as independent as possible.  Trips out and about will include lots of everyday activities in the local community, such as bowling, pub visits, sports, meals, walks & cinema.  At SUSO we also encourage those who drop in to take part in planning and decision-making, and to decide how SUSO runs.

Your support will enable people to develop confidence, friendships and new skills, and could really make a difference to the lives of those who are often overlooked in society.

We welcome those who would like to share their interests with others and participate in new activities.  As well as offering the opportunities to make a difference and add real value to a new and developing community service, this role will also enable you to meet a wide range of new people and make new friends, developing your confidence and abilities whilst learning new skills.

We offer flexible hours and the reimbursement of expenses.  To volunteer with us formal qualifications are not required and full training and support will be given.  Most importantly, we are looking for volunteers with an empathic and understanding nature, patience and willingness to try new things and share new ideas.  A good sense of humour is also important along with flexibility, enthusiasm and a sense of commitment.
