Volunteering is one of the most rewarding things you can do and thinking about how you want to benefit from volunteering is a good start to build confidence by trying something new and build a real sense of achievement.
Volunteering can have a real and valuable positive affect on people, communities and society in general. Volunteering gives you the chance to meet different kinds of people and make new friends. Volunteering can help you learn new skills, gain experience and sometimes even qualifications! Through volunteering you can challenge yourself to try something different, achieve personal goals, practice using your skills and discover hidden talents.
We operate 2 tiers of volunteer opportunities, Therapeutic Volunteering and Occupational Volunteering.
Therapeutic Volunteering is reserved for service users only. This is a chance to try something new without the risk of over commitment. We will guide and support you though your volunteering journey which builds skills and can help with employment and confidence.
Speak to your support worker if you’d like to try therapeutic volunteering.
Occupational Volunteering is supporting LASS with your passion and skills. Over our history more than 1000 local people have given their time to become actively involved with LASS. Whether supporting people affected; helping to raise awareness; getting involved with fund-raising; being on our Management Committee/Board of Trustees; or assisting in a variety of other ways.
