Volunteers needed

Volunteer - make a difference

We have a dedicated team of volunteers at Shopmobility who give some of their time to help us help more people and help us extend what we can do such as enabling us to meet people from their bus, taxi or their car with a scooter or wheelchair.

Current volunteer opportunities

We are looking for somebody who would like to volunteer with us for the following:

  • Customer Service Volunteers

Sunday afternoons (alternate weeks)

Weekday cover (ad hoc – covering for other volunteers who are away)

It would ideally suit someone who would like to gain some experience in a customer service or caring environment to enhance their skills or who would like to do something to help in our community.

The role is varied and involves assisting our customers with mobility scooters and wheelchairs, taking bookings, helping to update and maintain our booking processes and helping look after our vehicle fleet.

  • Leaflet delivery Volunteers

We are looking for people who can help us find homes for our leaflets to help more people find out about our service and who can help replenish them every so often.

We would love to hear from you if you have got a few hours to spare and have got ideas about where we could display our leaflets

 

How to find out more about our volunteer vacancies
