New Forest day opportunities

We have a wide variety of volunteering opportunities at our New Forest location, Minstead Lodge.

Assisting one of our skilled instructors, you could be helping the people we support to develop their skills in areas such as horticulture, animal care, woodwork and arts and crafts. In our supported living service, (as a Volunteer Buddy), you could be helping one of our service users to access their local community.

We are looking for people with good communication skills who are reliable, patient and kind.

Join us for a morning, afternoon or a whole day – or just whenever you can! We have opportunities to suit you and your availability.
