Volunteer

Currently we are not in the position to open as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic however when we do return we will undoubtedly be dealing with a higher than usual workload but please do get in touch if interested in joining the team in the meantime.

Specifically we are seeking the following.

Volunteers needed to train as advisers 

Our work is based around being able to offer accurate up to date information and help with the problems and issues that the disabled, elderly and carers present with (the bulk of our work is around supporting people to access the welfare system) at the drop-in centre.

Whatever the issue even if it is outside our wheelhouse we will endeavour to get the  person signposted to the solution or help they seek.

Full training is provided for this role and no previous experience is necessary for this  rewarding role although previous experience around disability and the social care system is advantageous .

Roles within NDI are DBS (Formally known as CRB) checked.

Local travel expenses are paid to volunteers.
