Volunteering for us

Volunteering for us

What are the benefits of volunteering?

There are many benefits of becoming a volunteer. These can include:

  • Developing your skills and enhancing existing ones
  • Building confidence when working on tasks individually and as part of a team
  • Overcoming challenges
  • Making friends
  • Making a positive difference to the lives of others.  

 

Volunteering is also recognised when applying for college or university and stands out to employers on your CV, which can often increase opportunities for paid employment.

Who can volunteer?

Volunteering is for everyone. Whether you are retired, in work or studying, you are welcome to apply for any of our volunteering roles. 

Please note you must be over the age of 18 to volunteer with ACE.

 

Volunteer roles we offer

ACE offers a variety of volunteering opportunities which are continually being refreshed and updated. These vary from directly supporting members of the community to providing much-needed ‘back-office’ support.  Some examples include:

  • Community Champion: helping gather data, raising awareness of support services and assisting patients to access on line services
  • Administration Support: assisting with administrative tasks to support a variety of health services
  • Ward Buddy: socialise with patients on the wards, provide information on self-managed care and support the nursing and therapy teams
  • Food Buddy:  support patients on the ward by interacting with them and assisting at meal times
