What can I expect to get from volunteering?

Volunteering can offer you the opportunity to experience some of the following:

  • Gain new experiences and develop new skills.
  • Try something new and meet new people.
  • Boost confidence and self-esteem.
  • Opportunity to contribute to your community.
  • Volunteering is a positive addition to any C.V.

 

Will I need to join the PVG scheme?

Tayberry Enterprise works with and supports vulnerable adults and as such PVG membership is part of our recruitment process. The requirement to join the PVG scheme is role specific and Tayberry covers the cost of the application.

 

Will I get a reference from Tayberry?

Tayberry is happy to provide references for our volunteers. However, our work is with vulnerable adults and it is important that there is structure and time to build healthy working relationships with our client base and service users. Therefore we require a minimum commitment of three months from our volunteers because of the nature of the work that we do. We are happy to provide a reference after 6 months of volunteering.

There are some roles within Tayberry’s volunteer program that are shorter and as such references will be discussed on an individual basis where the specific roles are concerned.

 

Will I be offered any Training?

It is important that all our volunteers fell supported and this includes training to ensure you feel confident within your role. As part of your induction, we will create a volunteer and training experience specifically matched to your skills and interests.

 

Do I get any Expenses Paid?

Reasonable out of pocket expenses to and from your volunteer experience will be given. This also includes expenses to and from training events.
