Why am I needed?

What skills do I need?

  • A friendly and enthusiastic approach, with great customer service skills
  • Efficient with good attention to detail
  • Sensitivity

How much time do I need to commit?

What support will I be given?

  • You’ll receive an induction to the charity and the Mobile Unit team will support you as you begin your role. There’ll always be another member of the Mobile Unit team to support you when you’re volunteering with us.
  • There may also be the opportunity for further training such as Supportive Skills and Welfare Benefits. You'll also have access to our eLearning training system.
