How volunteer recruitment works

Volunteering with adults

We run our adult volunteer recruitment in cohorts every three months. We do this because we are passionate about our volunteers receiving thorough training when joining us. This is important to us for two reasons: the first is that it adds genuine value for the people who volunteer, as you will be trained in contemporary practices and theories of a modern, evidence-based drug and alcohol service; the second is that it upskills our volunteers and lets them become a huge part of the work we do to support some of the most vulnerable members our society. 

Volunteering with young people

Applications to volunteer within our young people’s support group, M32, are open year-round.
