Volunteering with Wigan & Leigh Young Carers

Anyone over 18 years old can volunteer for Wigan & Leigh Young Carers, although you will need to have an Enhanced DBS carried out before you start, but we help with the costs.

Further information about the Disclosure scheme can be found here

Having a driving licence and access to a car is beneficial, but it will not stop you from volunteering. You can volunteer in a variety of ways, from helping with fundraising to supporting one of our after school groups, to befriending or maybe applying to be on our Board of Trustees. No experience or qualifications are necessary, but we do need two references from people or work colleagues that you know.

Training and out of pocket expenses are provided and we guarantee, you will have a rewarding experience!
