We consider all types of people who want to volunteer with us. From working with young people and families, to helping with administration, research and fundraising we have something that everyone can get involved with.
The process goes a bit like this:
We meet for an informal interview to think about how your skills, experience and personality could fit into One-Eighty
We get to complete a DBS check to ensure you can work with or around vulnerable children and adults
If you’re looking to help either short-term or with general office tasks, we invite you to meet with some of our team to discuss what you could get involved with. If you’re looking to help a bit more long term or you want to work with some of our children and families you would be expected to attend a week long training (Monday – Friday) and then regular supervisions with our support team to make sure you’re happy and staying on track.
For every volunteer who works with us more than 16 hours we will give a glowing reference. Many of our volunteers go on to get paid employment in services similar to ours – so it’s great for your CV.
