As a Volunteer Visitor, you play a vital part in getting financial help to people who need it. You will visit the homes of those applying for a Turn2us grant to provide face-to-face support and a review of their application.

You will be the face of Turn2us, supporting our Grants Team to reach more and more people and give them the help they need.

The Volunteer Visitor role is perfect for you because:

  • It is flexible with agreed time commitments that fit into your busy life
  • It is an opportunity to meet new people and visit new places
  • You will be a friendly face for many people feeling isolated

If you are looking for a flexible role that makes a lasting change, then sign up here. We would love to have you on board.

Visitor Volunteer Role

Where

Visits take place in the homes of people receiving a Turn2us grant. These are never normally more than 30 miles from your home and if you live in London they are likely to be within your borough or the one neighbouring. How far you travel is up to you.

When

You will be able to schedule your own visits on a day that suits you. We ask that you arrange the visit between 9.00 am - 5.00 pm, Monday to Friday so that a Turn2us staff member can answer any questions or deal with any issues.

Time commitment

Visits take place once a year for each person, so it will depend on how many grant applicants you want to take on. Some Volunteers do a visit once per month while others may do 5 per year.

Tasks involved


  • Report writing
  • Meeting and talking to recipients of Turn2us grants

Skills required


  • Interpersonal skills
  • Basic report writing skills

Training and Support

All volunteers receive an induction to Turn2us and relevant training for their role. Volunteers are supported by the Volunteer Support Manager, Volunteer Support Officers and the Volunteering Projects Officer.

What’s in it for you?


  • You’ll feel great knowing you are making a positive change to the lives of people who are struggling to get by
  • The role will help further develop your skills and experience and will look great on your CV!
