Your Time Will Make a Positive Difference!

Just do it. You’ve nothing to lose and everything to gain.” – Alasdair Freeborn, volunteer.

Do you want to:
– make a positive difference?
– meet new people and make friends?
– give your day a sense of purpose?
– feel really good about helping other people?

Our volunteers are vital to the work we do at Presbyterian Support. In fact, we couldn’t do it without them! And our volunteers say they
get even more out of it than they put in.

Here are some ways that YOU can help:


Mentoring is about engaging in a one-to-one intentional relationship with a young person. A mentor can inspire and enable a young person to build social connections, life skills, humour and a positive view of the future. And it’s as easy as a walk in the park, throwing a ball around, or making muffins. Mentoring will challenge you but also “enrich your life beyond measure”. We give full training and ongoing support.

Time commitment: Approximately 1-3 hours per week.

“It doesn’t cost you anything. The only thing you’re giving is your time, which is about the most important thing you can give anyone.” – Jason Aitken, mentor.
