Want to be part of the team?


Do you have some spare time and would like to be part of the change?
We have a range of volunteer opportunities to suit lots of people. Take a look at our current opportunities below.

Shopmobility Assistant 

If you love meeting new people and helping to assist people to live their best lives, then we’ve got a role for you!  Shopmobility Assistants are needed for our new shop in Chantry Place to help match people up with the right mobility aids, enabling them to get out and about around the city and gain confidence using the equipment.  This would be a great role for someone who’s interested in developing face to face, retail or disability assistance skills. 

Form Filling Adviser
This is a great opportunity for you to learn all about benefits available to disabled people, from finding out about conditions of entitlement to learning how to make the best case for a client. Whether you already have some knowledge and you want to make use of this to help others, or if you have no experience and are keen to learn, this role could provide you with an interesting and challenging volunteering opportunity.

Development Volunteer 

Are you looking to gain experience in marketing and administration? Do you enjoy writing, research and communicating with others? Then we need you!  Equal Lives is recruiting a volunteer to assist our Development Team on Wednesday mornings with promoting our Disability Equality Training and creating our e-bulletin and blog posts. 

Payroll Assistant Volunteer 

Are you experienced in the finance sector and looking for the next step in your return-to-work journey? 

Or maybe you’re a maths student looking to spend time volunteering to gain course credits?

  Either way, this could be the perfect role for you!


Equal Lives have a great deal of payroll and administrative related work which we require assistance with, if you’re a process driven and logically minded individual, with a passion to free the world from disabling barriers, then we want to hear from you!  This role would greatly help us with supporting disabled people in the local community.
