Volunteer with SMART
We aim to help people make positive changes to their lives, by encouraging growth, connection, community and recovery.
We couldn’t do this without the support of our volunteers. People like you who give their time and energy to help people to turn their lives around. But the relationship works both ways. We work hard to make sure our volunteers learn new skills and get the support they need.
We value our volunteers
“Volunteers are essential in enabling SMART to deliver successful and sustained outcomes for our service users. Your time, skills and personalities are integral to SMARTs achievements.”
Cath Hoskins, CEO
We offer a range of advice, support and training to all our volunteers. You are a vital part of the team.
We are always looking for volunteers, whether you want to make a positive difference in your community, gain professional experience, or become part of an inspiring team.
We have a range of volunteering opportunities and roles across our services: there is something to suit everyone. Click here to find the types of activities that you can get involved in.
