Volunteer

Our success is down to the energy and commitment of dozens of local people, who offer their time and skills to run many of the Trust's activities.

The Rame Centre has core opening hours but they depend totally on the number of volunteers we have - so more people means more public access. If you have any free time, we would love to hear from you.

We need people who like to talk & support people, and people who like to work on tasks - We don't insist on a regular weekly commitment - you come in when you can, and give us as much energy as you can spare. We have training and induction, but actually new people mostly learn from others who've been here a while - it's more sociable that way.  Contact us to learn more, enquire or volunteer!
