Volunteering Week (3 – 7 June) occurs every year in the summer and it gives us all here at Search a focus to increase our volunteering activity. During Volunteering Week we increase our recruitment drive, attend events and of course celebrate the work our volunteers have done for us over the last year or so.


We now have over 70 active volunteers regularly giving their time for our benefit. Some we see several times a week, some a few times a year and all their contributions are highly valued at over 5000 hours per year.

Volunteering can be very rewarding from a personal point of view, a way of learning new skills and developing knowledge or gaining experience to help with job seeking. We have a lot of opportunities from basic office work to leading activity groups for all ages and abilities. Language skills are always useful, office experience, life skills and a sense of humour! So if you fancy giving some of your time to us please get in touch and become part of the Search family. We offer a comprehensive induction programme, training and ongoing assistance in your role so you will never feel unsupported.
