Volunteer

Without our amazing volunteers, some services just would not be possible.

Volunteering brings together people who may not otherwise have the opportunity to:

  • make a connection
  • understand each other’s perspectives and experiences
  • develop relationships
  • learn from and support each other

Volunteering with CatholicCare allows participants to:

  • respond to the needs of the poor, marginalised or isolated in our community
  • gain a sense of belonging and influence the direction of their lives
  • achieve a greater feeling of self-worth and build confidence
  • enjoy an improved sense of wellbeing by meeting new challenges
  • expand life experience across diverse areas
  • increase social interaction and reduce feelings of personal isolation
  • gain skills, access to training and work experience
  • demonstrate initiative, drive and dedication
  • keep healthy and have fun by being useful
  • build a network of contacts

CatholicCare started with just 10 volunteers in 1980. Now with over 80 volunteers, CatholicCare is now able to provide services like:
Community Visitors Scheme
Family and Sibling Support
Pastoral Care 


Without volunteers, these services wouldn't be possible, so thank you to all CatholicCare volunteers who work tirelessly for the agency.
