Volunteering

Volunteers give priceless support to our services. With your help we can reach and support more veterans.

Whatever your background, you’ll find that volunteering for Care for Veterans is rewarding and challenging, and knowing that you are helping to make a difference is a great feeling.

We are currently looking for volunteers for the following:

Assistance at Fundraising Events with the Fundraising Team

We hold events throughout the year and always need extra pairs of hands to help out on the day, for example to help with refreshments, stalls, fundraising initiatives etc. We would let you know when our events are and you could volunteer for whichever ones you would like. Our events are held mainly on Saturdays, Sundays and in the evenings.

Reading and Chatting with Residents

We have some residents who would love to have more company and someone to come and read to them, play cards with them or generally just visit and have a chat. This sort of volunteering is very flexible as you could visit at any day or time to suit you.

Gardening

We have large gardens and are always on the look out for people to come along and help with weeding, planting, pruning etc. This is fairly flexible and you would liaise with our gardener to organise when to come and for how long. We also welcome gardening groups from companies and organisations.

Chaplaincy Volunteering

This is to assist our Chaplain in our Chapel at the communion services we hold every Wednesday at 3.00pm. It involves helping the Chaplain set up for the service and welcoming those who attend, and then accompany them back to their rooms at the end of the service. This would take about an hour to an hour and a half, and you could come to as many as you would like, ie attend weekly or monthly. There is also the opportunity to come along to our monthly ‘Songs of Praise’ service, usually on the 4th Sunday of every month at 3.30pm. The duties are similar as for the communion services in terms of helping set up and interacting with the residents who attend.

‘We enjoyed the tour you gave us and also understanding more about the history, care and rehabilitation you provide to your residents. It was very inspirational! We all agreed that we would very much like to come back and offer our services again in the future.’ Stevey Sayers, Southern Water
