At Wirral Evolutions we are proud to have an amazing team of volunteers who work within our services. Our volunteers bring a wide variety of skills and experience to our services. We welcome and value every volunteer, whatever your interests, background or skills.
We have a Volunteer Steering Group which meets every other month to shape and improve how we work with our volunteers.
Volunteering with us can be a hugely rewarding experience with a number of benefits:
- Helping to improve lives and promote independence for people with disabilities
- The opportunity to meet new people from different background
- The chance to develop new skills and have new experiences
- Improve your CV
- For those wanting a career in Social Care, it can provide valuable insight and experience
- Giving back to your local community
- Flexible hours to fit around your life and commitments
“As a volunteer at Pensbywood, I am supporting the staff and people who access the service to raise the profile of the centre by using my media skills to highlight their dedication and enthusiasm for the service. I really enjoy the diversity of the role and contributing to such a great service.”
“I am a retired children’s nurse and I wished to give something back to society. I came to volunteer at Heswall Centre one day a week. I feel whatever skills a person has can be put to good use at Heswall. I have supported people in a range of actives by working alongside staff who have been so welcoming, I really enjoy my role at Heswall and it is great to be part of a team again.”
