We love our volunteers. They bring new skills, fresh perspectives, local community links and contacts and make Pavilions an even more diverse and vibrant organisation.

Your time and commitment will be rewarded with:
- Improved confidence and self-esteem
- Essential experience of working in the substance misuse field

- Something to enhance your CV, and a reference from Pavilions
What do I need to be a volunteer?
We don’t expect you to have a lot of previous qualifications or experience – wanting to volunteer is the most important quality for us!
If you are in recovery yourself, all we ask is that you are stable with some clean time behind you.
You will receive regular support through supervision, and training for your role. We also pay your travel expenses.
We are looking for volunteers to commit to half a day a week, for a minimum of three months.
