Person Specification

We mostly just require a willingness to support those in need in the Lancaster District.

We do require a reference from someone who is not a relative or friend, an Enhanced DBS or the willingness to purchase one (for only £12) which we would help you sort quick and easily.

Vacancy Details

Bay Volunteers is a community-led service which supports the needs of people and communities across the Lancaster District, especially those who are elderly, vulnerable, isolated and/or housebound. We work with many partners, including Lancaster City Council, Lancaster District Community Hub, Lancaster District CVS, Lancaster and Bay Integrated Care Communities, Lancaster University Students’ Union, and many others to bring support to those in our community who need it.

As part of Bay Volunteers, volunteers can sign up and pick which tasks they would like to do, when they do them and how much they want to volunteer. The tasks that we receive, which our volunteers take up, mainly include either: shopping for someone, collecting and delivering post/parcels, collecting and delivering prescriptions, a listening call/walk, patient transport and/or digital support.

We hope to offer other types of task in the future, as well as other non-urgent tasks and one-off projects to benefit people and communities in the Lancaster District.
