What would I be doing?

We are looking for Community Connections Volunteers to support our members in Warrington.

Our Community Connections Volunteers provide flexible support to people in their community for around 3-4 hours per week.

What skills do I need?

We are looking for flexibility, and enthusiasm from our volunteers.
