Volunteering at the Portland Centre Office

We need dedicated Volunteers to help man the Portland Centre Office.

The Portland Centre is a 'One-Stop-Shop', based in Fortuneswell. We have been working to provide information, advice, guidance, support and counseling for 18 years. We respond to 6,000 client contacts every year, either in person, on the phone or by email.

If this sounds interesting and fulfilling come and talk to us.

We are also always happy to find a Volunteer who has specialist knowledge and skills, who can either be trained to join our specialist teams or who can with help and support from the Portland Centre Manager, offer an afternoon or evening support or activity group.

It is very important to us to find the right person for the right job, that way people feel fulfilled, happy and stay with us for years. Our longest serving Volunteer has been coming to 'work' for 17 years and she is still going strong.

Some Volunteers stay for a limited period in order to gain experience, new skills and a reliable reference to enable job seeking, others stay for many years – the choice is yours.

This is how the Portland Centre can help find the right volunteering to suit you:
