Much of our work depends on volunteers and we are always looking for more people to join our busy team. Examples include Mental Health Advocate Volunteers and Relevant Person’s Representative Volunteers.
Please find more information about our current volunteer opportunities below.
Could you spare some of your precious time to help us reach more people in need living in your community? We are facing an unprecedented demand for our Befriending service across the county and one of your neighbours may be in need of help.
Befriending is simple but very rewarding. Our volunteers pop in for a chat once a week for around an hour and talk about everything and anything. It is simple but means so much to the older person.
Our volunteers benefit from the visits as much as our clients. You can help to change the lives of local people and make sure no one has no one. Please get in touch for more information.

We match up a volunteer with someone in the area identified as needing extra support - often after a hospital discharge. Visits are once a week for around 6 weeks and support is with practical things like shopping/picking up prescriptions and also emotionally in the form of companionship and signposting them onto different services they may need. Our service is aimed at helping people regain their confidence and independence and to avoid re-admission into hospital/admission in the first place. For more information contact Lauren Slack.
Remap Bristol is a branch of Remap, a national charity that provides custom-made equipment for disabled people in the Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire areas. Our 30 or so skilled volunteers provide innovative, practical solutions to everyday challenges encountered by disabled people.
We are always keen to recruit new members who could help us expand the range of help that we offer.
We provide a lifeboat search-and-rescue service on the Severn Estuary between Gloucester and the Severn Bridges – one of the most challenging waterways in the UK. We need a volunteer fundraising crew who can give some of their weekend time, working alongside the operational lifeboat crew to collect the essential donations that keep the lifeboat station running.
If you are 18+, enthusiastic, willing to tell our story to the public – and able to give at least 20 hours a year of your time, then this volunteering opportunity could be just right for you.
In return, we will introduce you to the work we do, give you occasional opportunity to go out on one of the lifeboats, give you a uniform, and involve you in the life of the lifeboat station. Suitable volunteers may also be able to progress to full operational crew in the future.
