Details Hide[-]


This role would particularly suit those studying towards a health, social care, psychology or sociology degree but if you enjoy working with people and are keen to add to your CV then this role could be perfect for you.

My Guide volunteering is flexible around your other commitments so you can volunteer for as little as an hour a week to fit around you! To ensure you're confident in your role we will provide you with Safeguarding and specific My Guide training which will take place in either Exeter or Bristol.

To ensure you're not out-of-pocket during your time volunteering with us we will reimburse reasonable expenses in line with our organisational expenses policy.
