Volunteering in East Sussex
Volunteers give their time and help out in a number of ways in a variety of different settings across East Sussex. Our support volunteers work directly with adults with autism and Asperger’s Syndrome in our Resource Centre in Hastings, our Supported Living Service in St Leonards-on-Sea and our Asperger’s Support Group in Eastbourne. Volunteering in one of these services is a fantastic way to gain experience of supporting vulnerable adults with complex needs. Many of our support volunteers are students studying for Health and Social Care courses.
We also have an ever-growing team of volunteers based in our four established charity shops in Bexhill, Hampden Park, Seaford and Heathfield. Our fantastic shop volunteers help us to raise much needed funds to enable us to continue our work. If you’re more of a creative type, in Seaford and Heathfield we also have furniture upcycling opportunities. In June 2016 we are opening our fifth shop in Portslade and we are currently recruiting a brand new team of volunteers ready for opening day!
If you have some spare time each week and would like to get involved, please see our current volunteering opportunities below:
Group Activities Volunteer – help others to reach their full potential by volunteering for a few hours per week in our bright and airy Roebuck Resource Centre, tucked away in Hastings Old Town.
Supported Living Volunteer – support our residents to gain life skills by volunteering in our Supported Living Service based in St Leonards-on-Sea.
Asperger’s Support Group Volunteer – committed volunteers help us run our Friday afternoon support group in Eastbourne every week.
Van Companions – we are looking for volunteers to go out with our charity shop van driver and help him with deliveries and donation collections. You need to be physically fit, live in Seaford and be able to volunteer for a whole day.
