Volunteering with Social Witness

If you would like to join a team and volunteer working with older people, people with moderate or severe learning difficulties, then we would love to hear from you. Volunteering in the Council for Social Witness may entail driving, reading, playing music, organising outings or events, whatever skill or talent you have to offer we can put it to good use.

Once references and Access NI forms are followed up we can contact our Homes or Units in your area for vacancies. It's that simple and straight forward, so come on, don't delay, give volunteering a go today!

The Fresh Start Initiative

Volunteers for the Fresh Start initiative are invited to apply through the Getting On Board volunteer programme, run by the Council Social Witness.

The project needs help in several ways:

Volunteer mentors for basic skills.

More advanced help teaching a higher level of skills, and for help with getting NVQ qualifications.

Entry level work placements and on-job training opportunities for Category D inmates on both day and final release.

If you feel like you can help and can commit to awareness training, undergo vetting and undertake a contract for two and a half hours a month, for no financial reward, please get in touch. This will involve working with the same individuals each month up to release or relocation:
