Even if you’ve just got a few hours to spare, there are lots of ways you can get involved with our project and make a difference to local people
One off opportunities
Fundraising – we regularly hold fundraising events, such as bag packing days and tea parties. This is a fun way to get involved on an ad hoc basis.
Are you a group of colleagues or friends who would like to help out for a few hours? Why not get a team of you together to help transform a garden, repaint someone’s home or organise a fundraising event. Many hands really do make light work.
Regular volunteering opportunities
There are lots of ways you can get involved at times to fit in with your busy schedules
Driving roles – Regular and adhoc driving roles are available for both our Ripon and Harrogate based voluntary car driving services. Our volunteer drivers offer door-to-door transport to passengers who would otherwise struggle to get to appointments, to make essential journeys and get to social activities. Volunteers are reimbursed directly by the client for expenses.
Befriending roles – do you enjoy other people’s company? Are you a good listener? Opportunities exist as voluntary befrienders with with our Ripon & Rural Befriending Service. As a voluntary befriender you will be providing much-needed social contact for people who may be at risk of social isolation.
Social group volunteers – could you help out at one of our regular social groups? This involves meeting and greeting, making guests feel at ease and getting involved with activities such as craft.
This role is ideal for someone who enjoys meeting new people and likes to chat.
Office volunteers – are you organised? Do you like working in an office? We are looking for a regular office volunteer to assist with answering the phone and general administrative tasks in our busy Ripon office
