What is a volunteer?

A volunteer with Caring Hands Charity is someone who is prepared to offer mark deniseeven a few hours a week, to support the services we provide. Someone who has a clean smart appearance, is a good communicator, trustworthy, friendly, caring, able to follow instructions and respectful of others.

How much time you commit to spending with us is really up to you. Anytime a volunteer can offer is always a help, you could offer to be available for holidays and illness cover and might only be contacted 3 times a year! We only require volunteers between 9.00am and 4.00pm Monday to Friday. But if you are only normally available outside these times we may still need your support.
