Our response to Covid-19 - ensuring safe care, admissions and care home visits.

Volunteer with us

Putting your skills to good use, meeting new people and knowing you’re making a huge difference in your local community. Three great reasons to start volunteering at OSJCT!

Our volunteers are important members of the OSJCT Team, helping us create happy and fun homes for our residents.  They do a range of interesting and rewarding roles, so we’re sure to have something to suit your interests and flexible enough to fit with the time you want to give. 

Whatever your preconceptions about life in a care home, leave them at the door. We like nothing better than to have fun and celebrate life and the invitation to join us is open.

From lending a hand gardening to sharing your passion for music with residents.  Search here to find what volunteer roles are available in your area and to apply to become our next volunteer.


How Covid-19 has changed volunteering at OSJCT - things to know before you apply

Our volunteers have played an important part in our response to Covid-19, supporting our homes through this difficult time.  We couldn’t be prouder to have them as part of our team.

Please be aware that new government legislation states that anyone volunteering or working in a care home will need to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19, unless exempt.  This means that we can now only accept volunteer applications from individuals that have received both vaccinations.

All our volunteers are required to wear the appropriate PPE and follow other infection control measures when volunteering.  You will also need to attend the home to do a weekly PCR Covid test. Don’t worry, we’ll provide you with everything you need and will give you full training before you start.


Unfortunately, for now, we can't accept applications from anyone under 18 years old or from individuals working or volunteering in another healthcare setting. This is only temporary, and we hope to be able to lift these restrictions soon.

We're sorry if this means that you can't volunteer with us right now.

If you're still able to join us, please apply for a role today
