Volunteering with us

Would you be interested in joining as a volunteer helper or Trustee? We are a small, friendly team, enthusiastic about helping stroke survivors and their carers.

Lunch Helper – you would welcome members as they arrive, chat and get to know them as you hand round tea, coffee and sandwiches

We welcome new volunteer lunch helpers. At our lunch sessions you would help to welcome our members as they arrive from 11.45 onwards. You would set the table, hand round tea and coffee, sandwiches, fruit and cakes, chat with members and afterwards help to clear up after lunch. From 1pm you would help members to participate in the session's planned activities. We have a rota of lunch helpers, two helpers per session, arriving at 11.30 and leaving at 2pm.

Trustees – we are seeking new Trustees interested in supporting stroke survivors and their carers

Our Trustees are the Chair, Treasurer, Secretary, and four Elected Members. As a Trustee you would need to understand the duties and responsibilities of a charity trustee and would be encouraged to part of our friendly team, participating as a volunteer Lunch Helper if possible. All Trustees stand down at the AGM each year and may be nominated for re-election; a ballot may be held. Trustees are automatically members of the executive committee which meets about 5 times a year, normally at 2pm after the lunch session.

DBS checks will be required for all Trustees and Lunch Team Leaders and Helpers
