Volunteer with Us

Knowing you have helped someone is an amazing feeling, but there is so much more to gain. New friends, new skills and experience, and confidence, to name but a few!

Volunteers are an integral part of Connection Support, offering their time to support vulnerable clients from all backgrounds, who may be experiencing various difficulties in their lives.

Not everyone has someone to turn to in a crisis, someone to see the positive in a difficult situation, or to lend a hand. Connection volunteers help fill those gaps and, in doing so, often make a lasting difference to another person’s life.

We have a variety of volunteer opportunities across our projects in Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire, all are flexible.

We are currently seeking volunteers for these specific roles:

There’s no ‘one size fits all’ when it comes to volunteering with us

Whether you want to gain experience to move into a career in the social support sector, fill up your spare time, or simply make a difference; we would love to hear from you.

Volunteering with Connection Support offers many exciting opportunities. There is no typical volunteer, we believe that everyone has something valuable to offer. Whether your skills are practical, admin, language-based or people-centred, we can find a role to suit you.

We aim to be flexible around the hours and days of volunteering. Every hour is precious and every hour is appreciated.

Volunteers are valued members of the team and as such receive support and training and are paid out of pocket expenses, including a generous mileage allowance. We are seeking volunteers in Buckinghamshire, Milton Keynes and Oxfordshire.
