Would you like to:

  • make a positive difference to your local community
  • use your skills and life experience to help others
  • have fun and meet new people
  • develop new skills supporting others
The role of an ECHO volunteer is very dependent on the specific project they volunteer at. However, the fundamentals remain the same – our volunteers support participants to, take part and in activities, enjoy themselves and learn new skills.  

The Rep Group, Trustee Support Group and the Board of Trustees also hold voluntary positions, and these are vital for continuing and promoting the involvement of participants in the running of ECHO.  

Whatever the role and whatever needs the volunteer might have all are given support from the Volunteer Co-ordinators.  

All volunteers receive a monthly Volunteer Voice newsletter, informing them of upcoming events, sharing what has happened in various projects over the last month and including articles about volunteering.
