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.

Benefits Adviser

Our volunteer Benefits Advisers aid clients with disabilities in Norwich. The help they offer comes via assisting clients to complete Personal Independent Payment (PIP) forms.

This is a great opportunity for you to learn all about PIP, 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 you have no experience and are keen to learn, this role could provide you with an interesting and challenging volunteering opportunity.

This is a great opportunity for you to learn about payroll services and the related account and payroll functions. Tasks would include, but are not limited to, interpreting time sheets, calculating payments, processing HMRC returns and distributing payslips and other payroll information.
