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.

Volunteer befrienders needed in the Poole area

Can you spare an hour or two each week?  Volunteers are needed in the Poole area to provide support through friendship to local people who are feeling lonely and isolated.   There is currently a waiting list of people in Poole who have asked for a befriending match, however more volunteer befrienders are needed to respond to this need.

Two local organisations, the Dorset charity Prama and Poole Well-Being Collaborative have teamed up to recruit, train and support befrienders in response to this need.  They will match them with local people who have asked for and would benefit from this support.   

Katrina Keeling of Prama said; “Having friends to look out for you and people to socialise with is so important for your quality of life and well-being.  We would like to provide more befriending matches but to do this we do need more volunteers”. 

She continued, “My own experience of befriending was really wonderful; I was working when I became a befriender to an elderly lady and I used to visit her once a week for a chat and a cup of tea.  I didn’t know many people outside my own age group and it was lovely to have this friendship with someone I wouldn’t normally meet. Being a volunteer befriender opened up a new world for me”.

Prama and the Poole Well-Being Collaborative will give full training and support to volunteers.  All volunteers have to have a DBS check prior to being matched.   

If you are interested in becoming a befriender or finding more about the service, please contact either Bridget from Prama on 01202 666195 or Judith from Poole Well-Being Collaborative on 01202 977073.
