Come and join a vibrant and dynamic team!

At St Petroc's we readily welcome and value volunteers, their ideas, energy and time. We have been recruiting volunteers for many years but in recent years, this element has been developed to maximise on this fantastic resource of wonderful people with a commitment to better induction, training, supervision and mentoring.

We also like to make good use of all the skills, experience, hobbies and interests that the volunteers bring with them as this enhances the work of the organisation and with the clients in a very creative way.

What Our Volunteers Say...


It is an extremely rewarding role and is like being a member of a large, extended family as everyone is so caring.


It has been the biggest learning curve of my life, and I have enjoyed every moment of it.


My goal was to give something back to the community I'm so proud to have been raised in.

Just some of the activities that volunteers have provided....

  • Answering the phone
  • Data input
  • Supporting fundraising events
  • Facilitating photography groups
  • Gardening
  • Baking and Cooking
  • Befriending and mentoring clients and residents
  • Facilitating Art Groups
  • Sorting through donations
  • Support work
  • Facilitating theatre groups
  • General office duties

Come And Join Us!

It is a very exciting time to be getting involved with the organisation. There have been some significant changes with projects and service delivery and therefore a fresh energy and more opportunities for new volunteering roles. Not only that, we think our volunteers are so brilliant some have recently become paid members of staff!

As a volunteer, not only would you be making a difference but you would also be gaining work experience, learning new skills, boosting your own confidence and making new friends.

Do You...

  • Have some ideas?
  • Have some spare time?
  • Have hobbies and interests that you think can inspire others?

Would You...

  • Like to make a difference?
  • Like some work experience?
  • Like to meet new people and be part of our organisation and our wonderful team?
