Volunteers

Torbay is always looking for real people with compassion and understanding who want to make a change in the life of a real person. Torbay invites you to join us today!

Want to make a real difference in the lives of senior citizens? Want to meet new friends and benefit from new experiences? Want to get involved with a local charitable organisation? Then consider joining Torbay today as a volunteer and make a real difference!

By volunteering at Torbay you join a team of more than 120 people who give their time to serve alongside our 240+ staff. We could not do what we do without our dedicated volunteers. They do make a real difference. You can sign up for a set time each week or fortnight or you may want to join us for a specific project, the decision is yours.

All volunteers undertake an induction course and are trained to be able to fulfil their role.

 

What is there to do?

Volunteers can choose a number of voluntary activities across all of TORBAY’s services. Volunteers assist in providing:

  • companionship
  • social and recreational activities
  • pastoral care
  • drivers
  • administration support

Companions

Do you have the heart of a volunteer? Do you want to change someone’s life through a Social Support program? We have a number of residents that would benefit from visits by real people to sit and talk with them or to take them for walks in the grounds. One morning or afternoon per week or fortnight would greatly assist.

Coffee Shop Assistance

We have a very popular coffee shop with an automatic coffee machine (We will train you but it is very simple). We need volunteers to assist in this shop under the guidance of a Convenor and you would be working with another volunteer. Mornings only.
