Our volunteers matter to us because they make moments matter for the people in our care.
Our volunteers come from all walks of life, age groups and life experiences. Every volunteer is important to us.
You may never have interacted with someone living with dementia and you may be a little apprehensive. For others, our home may be very familiar and it can also evoke very emotional experiences. Whatever experience you may have had in the past, everyone always has a first day here in Saint Joseph’s Shankill and our Volunteer Coordinator, staff and families are with you every step of the way.
We can honestly say that you will gain more from your experience here by making a difference, meeting new people, having fun and being part of your local community.
