To be a volunteer, you don’t need any qualifications although if you have specific skills that might be useful, do make those known on your application. What we do need in reliability and a commitment to help regularly and to be friendly and want to work as part of a really inclusive team. We will provide you with an induction, training and support and you will be fully insured.

We are an equal opportunities employer, follow all Safeguarding guidelines, Disability Confident Committed employer and a Mindful employer. “Volunteering at The Living Room has made me revaluate my approach to many things, particularly addiction. It has also given me a timestamp for my week (something to look forward to), continuing stimulation and interaction with others. I believe I make a contribution – in a small way- which in turn gives me satisfaction that my time is well spent.” To have a discussion or to find out more call us on 0300 365 0304, alternatively apply using one of the application forms at the top of this page.
