Each year volunteers donate the equivalent of over £1 million in precious time to help us in so many different ways.
From helping on our inpatient unit, volunteering in a shop, marshalling at one of our events or supporting our innovative children’s project, RocON!, there is something for everyone.
Last year over 129, 000 hours were given by our volunteers, enabling us to save over £1 million by the support that they provided.
But we also gained in other ways. Volunteers bring many different and extensive skill sets which benefit our work enormously. Volunteers come in all ages and from many different walks of life. These life experiences and varied backgrounds and outlooks add diversity and a bring a fresh perspective to life at St. Rocco’s.
Volunteering is a great way to meet people, make new friends and enhance and develop new skills.
