We welcome the involvement of volunteers in our organisation because of the unique qualities they bring. Volunteers add value to Quarriers’ work and enrich the lives of the people we support by bringing:
- specialist skills and knowledge
- new ideas
- flexibility to focus intently on a particular issue or task
- immediate access to the community
To ensure you are fully supported to undertake your volunteering role with us, we offer free training. Training can be as simple as an induction or it can include more details specific to the role you’ll be doing. This will give you a broader knowledge of disability care and support needs, active listening skills, relationship building, etc. which can be very useful in other aspects of life.
“The contribution that volunteers make is invaluable, and they have provided people we support with experiences that they may not have otherwise had.”
