Are you motivated to make a positive impact in individual lives within your local community? Are you looking for ways to maximise your own gifts and talents in order to help others? Are you looking to gain experience in the public sector? Are you looking at ways to use a ‘gap year’ or gain practical experience outside of your studies? Are you retired or with time to spare during the day?


If you’ve answered ‘yes’ to any of the questions above then we would love the opportunity to talk further with you.


At present Friends First are looking for volunteers to support our work in the following ways:

  • People with trade skills/practical skills who enjoy working with others

  • People with catering experience who enjoy working with others

  • People with support work experience, or experience of working with vulnerable adults
