Without volunteer support we would not be able to provide the wide range of support we offer to carers in the borough. ALL volunteers are valued members of the Carers Lewisham Team. Where appropriate we offer training and supervision as well as social events and we participate in National Volunteer Week annually.

Volunteers carry out a wide range of tasks, so if you have time or skills to offer please get in touch. No particular skills needed, only your enthusiasm and energy! We pay volunteers out of pocket expenses including travel (public transport costs) and lunch when you work for 5 hours or more.
