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)
