Volunteers

We have about a dozen volunteers, in addition to our Trustees. Our volunteers provide essential support to our residents, making their daily lives better.

Our volunteers form a central part of life at Bernhard Baron Cottage Homes. Volunteers drive the minibus, prepare the Christmas stockings, arrange the Sunday service, assist on outings, run the shop, provide musical and other entertainment and offer a kind ear or shoulder when needed. It takes a special kind of person to volunteer and we are immensely grateful for the time and effort offered by our volunteers.

Become a volunteer

If you would like to join our volunteers, please call us on 01323 483613 for an application form. Before we can accept your application we are required to take up two references and to do a DBS check, for which we will pick up the cost.

In the meantime, we will keep you informed of what is happening at the Homes and we will be delighted to welcome you at coffee mornings and our summer fayre.

We have about a dozen volunteers, in addition to our Trustees. Our volunteers provide essential support to our residents, making their daily lives better.

Our volunteers:

Most important of all, a volunteer is there when a resident needs a special friend.
