xxVolunteering

We are mostly driven by our dedicated team of volunteers but more are needed to help us.  You can do as much or as little as you want to on a regular basis.  No pressure will be applied, the only requirement will be the need for us to complete a DBS check to allow you to work with vulnerable adults and of course, full training will be given once you decide which area you want to be involved in.

  • Testimonial
    I love helping people and when I retired last year I knew I had to do something. My Dad had dementia and I help with Monday Singing for Pleasure at Langley as it reminds me of him as he was in a choir. I love helping people and talking to them, it gives me a lot of satisfaction. (‘ADS’ Volunteer)
