Puffins is run entirely by volunteers and we are always looking for more! We have around 20 volunteers currently helping us, from all backgrounds and swimming experience. Most volunteers support the club by helping on our regular Monday swimming sessions, but we also need help outside the pool such as running our swimming gala, support in fundraising and helping with transport.
Volunteering for Puffins is an opportunity to give something back to the community, meet new friends and gain new skills in a relaxed and friendly environment. We have regular social activities such as a summer outing, swimming galas and a Christmas meal. Take a look at our News and events section for more info.
Don’t worry if you don’t think you have the right experience or you have not helped those with disabilities before. We will provide training and there will always be another volunteer with you during your early sessions to give you support.
Please email the application form to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Once you have joined as a volunteer, we will organise a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check for you.
