We're here to answer some common questions and shed light on the rewarding experience of becoming a volunteer with us.

1. Why Volunteer for Time for you?

Volunteering with Time for You is an opportunity to make a real difference in the lives of carers and their loved ones. Our volunteers play a vital role in providing support to carers, allowing them the essential time to maintain their health, wellbeing, and independence. Please note that as a Time for You volunteer, you will not be responsible for providing personal care.

2. What Are the Benefits for You?

Volunteering offers numerous personal benefits. It's a chance to:

- Meet New People: You'll connect with fellow volunteers and the individuals you assist.

- Use Your Skills to Help Others: Contribute your expertise to make a positive impact.

- Give Something Back: Give back to your community and make a meaningful difference.

-Increase Self-Esteem and Confidence: Volunteering can boost your sense of self-worth and self-assurance.

Volunteering for Seachange is cost-free, and we reimburse all your expenses. It's also incredibly flexible; you can choose to dedicate as much or as little time as your schedule allows.
