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!

Volunteers

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 temporarily changed volunteering at OSJCT 

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

Unfortunately, at the moment we can only accept volunteer applications from individuals who are not volunteering elsewhere or attending a workplace.  

We know this is a big ask but given the prevalence of asymptomatic transmission of Covid-19, Public Health England strongly recommends that care homes do all they can to restrict volunteer and staff movement in order to protect our residents.  

You should also be aware that when in the home, all our volunteers are required to wear the appropriate PPE and follow other infection control measures.  But don’t worry, we’ll provide the PPE for you and all the necessary training you need to get started.

We’re sorry if this means that you can’t volunteer with us right now.  We hope you’ll still be interested in applying when we’re able to lift these measures.

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