Getting involved and making a difference


At Friends for Leisure we are continually recruiting volunteers in Cheshire East.  Volunteers are at the heart of our organisation and vital for Friends for Leisure to continue providing a service.

We are looking for enthusiastic, friendly, motivated volunteers, over 15 years old, who can give some of their time to make a difference to a young person.  (See general role and responsibilities)

There are a number of ways volunteers can get involved at Friends for Leisure:

• Youth groups – role and responsibilities

• Bowling sessions – role and responsibilities

• Holiday activities

• One to one friendships – role and responsibilities

• Fundraising

• Being a trustee – click here to go to the trustee page for more information

In return for your time you will be offered opportunities for training and personal development.

This means:

• Helping to increase your confidence

• It’s brilliant for CVs and personal statements

• You’ll get experience for future careers

• You’ll meet new people

• You’ll be part of a team

• You’ll have fun!

We pay out of pocket expenses and mileage for volunteers, so it should cost you no more than some of your time.

If you think you could be a Friends for Leisure volunteer the application process is simple: •

Please fill out an application form either online or the paper version

• We will ask you to provide two professional references

• We will arrange for an informal telephone interview with you

• You’ll be invited for an interview

• We’ll request a DBS (formally CRB) check if it’s appropriate for your role

• You’ll have an induction

If you have any questions do not hesitate to call the office or alternatively email our Volunteer Coordinator abi@friendsforleisure.org.uk
