Big Help Out 2024 Posted on Friday, 7 June 2024

If you have been inspired by Volunteers’ Week and would like to make a difference, the Big Help Out app has been launched for 2024.
Originally created to mark the King’s Coronation, it is now back to encourage more people to volunteer for a one off event or to make an ongoing commitment with a charity such as VASL.

We have been working locally with volunteers for many years and we offer full training and support, with opportunities to get to know other volunteers.

Our volunteering opportunities are all ongoing, rather than for one day, and vary between an hour a week (telephone befriending) to a day or more (volunteer drivers).

Our volunteers support family carers (phone), people who want to improve their wellbeing (phone), people who are lonely (visits or phone), people caring for someone with dementia (visits or phone).

Our volunteer drivers take people who don’t have access to other transport to medical and other appointments.

Our Trustees provide experience and guidance to ensure that VASL is run correctly.

From time to time we recruit volunteers to work within the office.

Please have a look at the Big Help Out app for national and local opportunities

or if you would like to volunteer with VASL contact us direct on 01858 433 232 or email admin@vasl.org.uk or complete the following contact form.
