Volunteer with us

Help us to make a difference


Volunteers are a vital part of Community Waves’ activities.  Our volunteers bring valuable skills and knowledge to the organisation, that we can draw upon to make a real difference. Some people have experience of services as a patient or a service user and some have useful knowledge of health and social care services from previous professional roles. Much of our strength is rooted in the passion of the people who choose to become involved with us and we are very much aware of this.
