New and exciting volunteer opportunities

available at Richmond AID !

 

Volunteering is a great way of gaining new skills, meeting new people and contributing to our work. As a volunteer, you will receive on-the-job training, guidance and support from our team as well as the opportunity to gain new skills and experience, and you will be part of a friendly team of staff and volunteers. Anyone can apply and we particularly encourage people with disabilities.

We are looking for people with lived experience of disability to support our peer groups to run effectively and independently.
