Volunteers in response to Coronavirus
Dial West Cheshire relies on it’s volunteers to provide services to disabled, older and vulnerable people. This is especially vital now when demand for our service is high and our workforce is depleted due to the crisis.
Although we are underway with the first phase of reopening our sites, some of our Shopmobility sites remain closed, as does our head office in line with current government guidelines. We have restructured our activities to operate remotely and are currently working on what specific volunteer roles we may need. If you would like to register your interest in volunteering with us please complete the form on the Contact Page of this website.
We do not currently have any paid vacancies. Please check back regularly for updates.
