Why Volunteer?

Norwood’s volunteers are the lifeblood of the organisation, fundamental to helping us deliver our services to the thousands of vulnerable families and children, children with special educational needs, and adults with learning disabilities we support.

In choosing to volunteer with us, you’ll also be joining the ‘Norwood Family’ – those who work tirelessly to achieve the best outcomes for the people we support – learning vital new skills along the way.

It could be that you’re retired or working part-time, and would like offer some of your free time to help others.

Perhaps you’re looking for your your employees to volunteer with us, as part of your organisation’s CSR, or as a team-building exercise.
