What we're looking for
For most volunteering opportunities at the Camden Society, you don't need to have any previous experience. We ask that you are enthusiastic, positive, patient and respectful.
Most of all we need you to be willing to support people with disabilities to learn new skills and develop new relationships in the ways they choose and at a pace they feel comfortable with. You will get full training and support to feel confident in your role and enjoy your time with us.
To become a volunteer you will need to have an informal interview, complete a CRB check and provide two references.
How to apply
Thank you for your interest in becoming a Camden Society volunteer. Unfortunately we do not have any volunteering vacancies at present, but expect to begin recruiting again in April 2013.
In the meantime, if you'd like to discuss anything about volunteering for us, please contact:
