Volunteer with us

We are always looking for people to join our enthusiastic, committed hard-working team of volunteers who provide essential support throughout York Carers Centre work.

What can volunteers do to help?

We value the significant contribution our volunteers make – you can volunteer with us on a weekly or monthly basis, or just help out when you can.

We have many different opportunities for volunteers; from helping out at monthly carer groups to help in the office or to supporting carers on a more one to one basis. Please see our Volunteer Vacancies page for details.

What we offer volunteers:

  • A full induction and training programme with ongoing support
  • A chance to meet and interact with new people
  • An opportunity to benefit unpaid local carers, gain new skills or develop existing skills/knowledge
  • An opportunity to be part of a team, improve your self confidence and have fun
  • All expenses and DBS check paid
  • Policies and procedures to support you



“Thank you for the opportunity to improve my office based skills – volunteering in the Carers Centre office definitely helped me to gain a very interesting job”
