If you are flexible about the kind of volunteering you would like to do, or are interested in several different kinds of volunteering activities, you can send us a general volunteering application and our Volunteer Service Manager will have a chat with you about the options available to you.  Our online application form will ask you to tick the kinds of activities you are interested in, or feel free to contact us (volunteer@togethertrust.org.uk) if you would rather apply in a different way such as by paper application form or video application.

The roles we have available change from time to time but can include:

Vocational Class Activity Assistant - Special Education

We run lots of interesting classes with the young people attending our special education schools and college, such as joinery, bricklaying, bicycle repair, and mechanics. If you have skills in any of these areas and are interested in working with young people with special educational needs, autism, or emotional and behavioural problems, Maybe this is the role for you! Our teachers run the sessions, with volunteers needed to simply bring along extra knowledge and enthusiasm to support individuals within the group.

Reading or numeracy assistant

We are proud to provide high quality support to the people we care for, educate, and stand up for. Volunteer befrienders boost their self esteem and wellbeing through weekly meetups or telephone calls. This could be with a young person living in one of our residential care services, or with one of our student's family members experiencing social isolation.

Community Activity Leader - Music / Dance / Art / Yoga

At our community services for adults with learning disabilities, autism and/or complex health needs, we run a diverse range of exciting and varied activities with opportunities to develop vocational and independence skills, such as baking, sensory sessions, gardening and relaxation. If you have the skills and confidence to lead creative and fun sessions in activities such as music, dance, art, or yoga, maybe this is the opportunity for you! Our existing staff will provide the support for participants to join in.

Fundraising Helper

Volunteers can help us with fundraising in various different ways, such as adding clothes to our online sales page, being a match-day car park attendant, or being part of our friendly team at fundraising events.

Events assistant

If you like to dip in and out of volunteering rather than turning up each week, becoming an Events Assistant may be just the thing for you! From marching with us at the Manchester Pride Parade to marshalling at our annual awards event or helping out at our Christmas Carole Concert, there's a variety of activities for you to get involved with!

Gardener

We have lots of gardens and outdoor spaces across our many services, including our schools, college, and residential homes. Volunteers with green fingers who would like the opportunity to put their skills to good use are very welcome to join us for some quality outdoor time! This role will sometimes involve volunteering independently, but may also include some time with the people we support in that setting, helping them to experience the beneficial effects of gardening.
