Volunteering in Adult Social Care
Have you thought about volunteering in adult social care for a new career experience, to help others or to meet new people?
Adult Social Care is a fast growing and diverse sector. It offers a large range of rewarding and challenging careers, with many different job roles available and lots of opportunities for progression. One way that you might like to become involved in social care is through volunteering.
Volunteering can be extremely rewarding and beneficial for all involved. From offering insights into the work of social care and contributing to an enhanced sense of well-being both for the volunteer and the people that they support within their role.
Volunteering can be a way of supporting you to choose a new direction in life or helping you develop a career path that you may have already embarked upon. As well as potentially supporting you to get back into work or give your CV a boost, volunteering can improve your confidence, improve your health and help you to meet new people.
Our volunteer page lists a range of social care providers in Medway who welcome volunteers within their service.
