Current opportunities

These are some of the main areas seeking volunteers at the moment, but it’s not an exhaustive list. If you’d like to volunteer and don’t see an opportunity that excites you, get in touch anyway – we may have just the role for you.

Volunteer befrienders

We are looking for volunteers to offer friendship and support to local people.

CoCo takes its name from ‘compassionate communities’ and is a befriending scheme for anyone who’s finding it hard to reach out and get the help or social contact they need.

CoCo volunteers are carefully matched with people with similar interests. Friendship and companionship are the priority of the scheme, but volunteers may also help in a variety of ways. They might assist someone with shopping, give respite to a carer, help sort out bills and paperwork, join someone for a walk or an outing, or simply sit and chat over a cup of tea.

Our next CoCo volunteer induction will be on Wednesday 1 September.

Volunteer youth worker

We need energetic, inspiring volunteers to work alongside experienced youth workers.

From November, we will be creating a relaxed and inviting space for local 13–16-year-olds to meet up, outside of school hours. We are now looking for volunteers who can spare a couple of hours per week. Maybe you are looking at gaining experience in youth work, are interested in supporting young people, or want to be a part of the growing youth provision in Church Stretton. Whatever your experience, we would love to hear from you. In return, we will provide full training and ongoing support.
