Volunteer with us ...

Learn new skills!  Meet new people! Support local projects for local people!

We rely on our valued and committed volunteers to help us. We offer a range of volunteering opportunities including;  

Helping with PramaLIFE activities, clubs and groups.  We can always use a willing pair of hands... whether that's to make a cuppa, become a volunteer driver for our mini-bus service or help run an activity at one of our many PramaLIFE clubs.

If you only have an hour or so a week you can still make a huge difference, we need volunteer befrienders for people who have asked for this support to combat loneliness and isolation. 

Or join our award winning team of volunteers supporting our six charity shops.  Our shops in Kinson, West Moors, Tuckton, Ashley Cross, Parkstone, Poole High Street and Ringwood, all raising valuable funds to support our PramaLIFE clubs and groups.   

There's lots on offer, please just give us a call (01202 207300) or see specific vacancies below.  Training is available for volunteer roles and DBS checks may be made.

Development Workers

AboutPramaCTA1In addition to the primary care services that Prama provide, we also fund Development Workers to research and develop new ideas for our operations. The DW’s will explore new ideas and initiatives that Prama can pursue in order to provide our customers with the best services possible.

Whilst we provide funding for certain periods of time, the Development Workers are looking for ventures that can ultimately become sustainable in the near future in order for them to facilitate growth for Prama, both financially and experientially. Successfully achieving this will mean our customers will have more and more services to benefit from in the future and, as a result, this will allow the Prama experience will develop.

New Services

A few examples of the Development Worker’s successful projects are the introduction of social events such as coffee clubs and knitting groups that are available to the residents. These require a small entry fee which enables the groups to be self sustaining with no further funding from Prama required.

We have recently partnered with an amazing organisation called Age Concern Poole to synergise our efforts into one collaborative experience. Age Concern provides residents with a range of different opportunities including a bus system and small events called pop-ins. These pop-ins do not require any membership fees and they allow residents to partake in activities such as parties, bingo and lunches.

PramaBan2In addition, Prama helped establish a service called FACE (Family and Community Enrichment) which can be found in Immanuel Church, Southbourne. FACE hold meetings for carers and people experiencing bereavement as well as sessions where speakers can give advice to those in need.

Our collaboration with Development Workers is an on going process and shows how Prama are continually looking for ways to improve the quality of our customers experience and grow the business at the same time.
