Our charity is built on our volunteers

Our charity is built on our volunteers. Without them we couldn’t continue to do all the positive work for the Armed Forces Community.

Volunteers do much of our direct work, as well as helping us in so many other ways such as fundraising, and promoting our work. We always need new volunteers, throughout Warwickshire, Coventry and Solihull so please get in touch, we’d value your support.

As a volunteer you could help in so many different ways:

  • Peer to Peer support, one on one or in groups
  • Helping with the smooth running of the organisation in an administration capacity
  • Raising much needed money or promoting our services
  • Being involved in our activities

You don’t need any qualifications or previous experience of this kind of work to Volunteer. All you need is willingness to help and a little time.

As part of your application to volunteer, we have to a check with the Disclosure and Barring Service (formally known as Criminal Record Bureau). This is for the protection of the people we help.  Please note: having a criminal record does not automatically exclude someone from becoming a volunteer with our charity.

We welcome volunteers from every walk of life and from every community. This helps us reach out to people in need, whatever their circumstances. That’s why we have policies in place to sure we attract the best volunteers from all communities.

Volunteers are the life blood of our organisation. So we invest a lot of time in supporting volunteers in the knowledge that a well supported volunteer is an asset to our organisation and the people we help. All our volunteers receive comprehensive inductions, training (when required) and ongoing support.

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer with us, please let us know by registering your interest by telephone: 02476 343793 or by email: contactus@veteranscontactpoint.co.uk/
