Volunteer with us

We want new volunteers to join us! We are always looking for enthusiastic volunteers to help us in lots of different ways. Just a few hours of your time each week can make a massive difference to the lives of the people we support.

Here at Aspens, we recognise the immense value that a well-organised, structured volunteering programme brings us. Volunteers from a wide range of communities across Sussex and Kent give their time and bring both their passion and skills in support of our work. Our volunteers, from all backgrounds and all ages, make our organisation more diverse and exciting, in turn enriching the lives of the people we support.

We are incredibly thankful for all the support we receive from our volunteers. We have over 170 volunteers at the current time, who give us, on average, an incredible 3000 hours of their time every month. We are grateful for this gift; for their commitment and dedication to our organisation.

Volunteering is fun, rewarding and an excellent opportunity to meet new people, become more involved in your community and make a real difference. You can develop your existing skills and gain new ones. Volunteering is a great way of enhancing your CV and we can even provide a reference for a future employer.

We have a range of volunteering opportunities available across Sussex and Kent, both during the day and in the evening, every day of the week. You can support individuals or groups in our services, help with one-off projects or fundraise in our shops. So whether you are retired or working, a student, or a parent, there are so many ways you can get involved. Volunteering with us will be an immensely rewarding and enjoyable experience for you.

Just recently we have begun to support a number of our service users to volunteer independently in the local community. We have helped a group of individuals to find external volunteering opportunities of their choice and supported them to settle into their new roles. This project has been a great success and we are delighted to report they are all getting on well.
