Volunteer with Certitude

We want our volunteers to feel as much a part of Certitude as anyone else and to progress their personal development while volunteering with us. We offer appropriate training for any roles you apply for and can also support you with training for other roles you might be interested in.

 We welcome new, fresh ideas and encourage people to really get involved where they volunteer. This can include taking responsibility for running workshops and programmes, supporting people in their daily lives, coming up with new event ideas – the list is endless! Whether you’re looking to improve your CV, interested in working in the social-care sector or just want to help out for a day or two, there’s a volunteering opportunity for you at Certitude. 
“As soon as I arrive I feel very welcome, it really does brighten my day! I feel that I have built very strong relationships with people at the house which I really value. After a long day at work in an office environment it is refreshing to do something different and I feel very fortunate to have found it. It gives you a different perspective on things and I feel that I have gained as much volunteering at Certitude as hopefully the people I have supported have too.”
