We offer one-to-one guidance at our Volunteer Advice Sessions and training to help you become volunteer ready. Please note that guidance for individuals with long-term health conditions (physical and mental) is only available from our inclusive volunteering advisor on Tuesdays.
These free sessions take place at various venues every week for volunteers and people considering volunteering. Here you can meet a member of the team and receive one-to-one guidance on finding and applying for a role as well as advice on preparing for interviews and more.
All Volunteer Advice Sessions operate on a first-come, first-serve basis and we try to see as many people as we can. Use the calendar below to find out when you can meet us. If you can't meet us this month you can see later dates by visiting our Facebook page.
Sessions with Inclusive Volunteering Advisor are open to all however those with long-term health conditions (physical and mental) should attend this session to discuss specific needs. They take place every second and fourth Tuesday at the CAN Mezzanine in the Treaty Centre, where our adviser is on hand to help you every step of the way.

Our Introduction to Volunteering is accessible for people of all needs and abilities and aims to answer questions like:

The training should be pre booked at a time which suits your group, please get in touch to arrange a session at your convenience.
