The British Home For people living with neuro-disability

Volunteering with the Home

You can make a difference.  Come and volunteer!


Volunteers are an integral part of the life in The Home and their enthusiasm and commitment enriches the lives of both residents and staff.  Volunteers come from all walks of life, from those newly retired, those between jobs, those attending sixth form/college, families of residents or company employees.

Volunteers can help with a wide array of activities.  We match volunteer skills and experiences to the needs of our residents and pair up volunteers with residents who share similar interests or hobbies.

Below are some of the activities volunteers can get involved with:

  • Help with the fundraising 
  • Playing cards or board games
  • Reading aloud to an individual or a group
  • Sharing a meal
  • Help in the computer suite
  • Visit (just listen)
  • Teach a skill or talent (scrapbooking, weaving, painting, computer skills)
  • Help a resident type his or her memoirs
  • Play the piano or other musical instrument or sing for the entire facility
  • Remember birthdays, and help other residents make birthday cards
  • Become a pen pal
  • Be a behind-the-scenes volunteer, helping staff members
  • And much, much more!




The requirements for volunteers vary depending on the role you undertake. Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) clearance and references will need to be obtained
