Volunteer Befriending


Thanks to funding from the Big Lottery Fund in 2011 we have developed the Spiral Volunteer Programme. Over the last 4 years we have seen the huge difference volunteers make to the work of Spiral.

Volunteer Carer Unfortunately, due to the ending of the Spiral service on 31st December 2017 (see opposite) we are unable to recruit further volunteers. We remain incredibly appreciative of all the time and energy given by volunteers as this has shaped the development of this service and made a positive difference to local children and families.


What our volunteers say …

Really enjoy volunteering as it is extremely rewarding and everybody is very friendly and welcoming.

Apart from bringing up my own children, it’s the most wonderful thing I have been involved in. The warmth, love and support are second to none.

I would like to share how fun, enjoyable and rewarding it is to work with such amazing kids.

I’ve loved every second working with the kids at ANTS! They are all amazing and as much as we are there to brighten their day, they brighten up mine just as much!
