Local Community Volunteer

← Back to search results

Essex Wellbeing Service is currently supporting people throughout Essex who need extra assistance with small tasks or community connection. Roles are flexible and can be scheduled around a volunteer’s availability. Opportunities to assist include being a

shopping buddy, phone buddy, dog walker, light garden maintenance or perhaps to

accompany someone on a walk. For us it’s about connecting communities with kindness.

Please note, registration and volunteer opportunities are online and therefore the ability to use a computer or your mobile (through an app) is required.

This service is delivered by Provide Community Interest Company

What skills do I need?

There are no core volunteer roles within EWS that require a qualification. It is more

important that volunteers possess a wide range of social skills rather than academic

ability. Good communication, patience, reliability and empathy are some of the key skills

preferred however people often find that they strengthen these qualities throughout their

volunteer experience.
