Volunteer with us

"The greatest gift, is the gift of time..."


LEAP is always on the look out for enthusiastic people who enjoy the company of others and have the skills to volunteer in any one of our fantastic projects. You can give as much or as little time as you can manage, but all we ask is that you are committed to helping us deliver a first class service.


We are currently on the look out for volunteers who can help us fill the following volunteer positions:



The befriending service provides people with short or long-term one-to-one support offering companionship and friendship to older people who may be lonely or isolated. We are looking for befriender volunteers across all areas that we cover.



We are always on the look out for more handypeople across all the areas that we cover. The handyperson service provides practical assistance with small jobs around the home such as changing lightbulbs and curtains, washing inside windows, turning mattresses and more.
