We always need volunteers even part time ones, we work flexibly and provide the necessary training. You will be asked to come for an informal meeting and be required to have a DBS check.
The main services we need volunteers in are:
Our Charity Shops
We have recently opened a shop on Botchergate in Carlisle and we also have our shop on St Cuthberts Lane, Carlisle. Both shops are staffed by our clients with support put in by our team and volunteers. We sell clothes, books, bric-a-brac and more!
We urgently need volunteers who can commit regularly to help our clients run their shop Monday- Saturday.
Carlisle Active is a group of 30 Adults with learning disabilities who meet on a monthly basis to do leisure activities. The group is staffed by volunteers and organised by Angela Beale. Examples of activities are walking and trips out. This group acts as a befriending service for people.
Carlisle Active need volunteers who are available to go on day trips on one Sunday a month.
Holidays for Adults
We run holidays for adults, to Center Parcs, Blackpool, Calvert Trust and a Summer Sun holiday every year. Each one is staffed by volunteers and organised by Angela Beale. The holidays provide an opportunity for disabled adults to go on holiday with their peers and to experience new things with the correct level of support.
To volunteer to go on holiday you will need to be willing to give up a long weekend or week of your time.
We run many different children’s clubs, sports clubs, theatre arts clubs, general social clubs, trips out, adventure holidays and more!! We support children with disabilities to take part in different activities try new things and interact with their peers in a safe supported environment.
We welcome volunteers to put on special activities as well as supporting the young people as a group.
We are always looking for Mini-bus drivers and all of our services require drivers at some point.
