Carers FIRST are looking for enthusiastic volunteers with an interest in social work and social care and a little spare time. 

Carers FIRST are a Chatham based charity that supports people who look after a relative or friend that, due to ill health, physical or mental illness, disability, frailty, or addiction, cannot manage without their support.

Volunteer roles include: 

  • Telephone befriending
  • Helping at support groups
  • Helping with benefit forms
  • Administrative assistance
  • Supporting with young Carer activities

They provide an induction and relevant online training so no previous experience is required. Other training and shadowing opportunities may be provided depending on role and they are open to more bespoke opportunities for interested students. 

This role needs a DBS Check. 

If you are interested and would like to find out more please contact volunteering@gkunions.co.uk or fill in our sign up sheet.
