We have several micro volunteering roles available where we need volunteers on an ad hoc basis. These roles are one-off or irregular without the requirement for ongoing commitment. These volunteering roles are usually quick tasks meaning you can volunteer in your local community without it impacting too much on your daily routine.
As part of our Micro Volunteering offer, general support volunteers are needed for various one-off or irregular activities/tasks throughout the year at M&DCVS. Micro volunteering is ideal for those who aren’t able to commit to regular volunteering.
You will be added to a secure database of volunteers which allows M&DCVS to email tasks for you to accept or decline based on suitability or your availability. Please note: an active email address will be needed for this.
Drivers are needed for various one-off or irregular activities throughout the year. Our volunteer drivers may be asked to collect and deliver a food parcel or small household item or collect and deliver items of second-hand furniture. Some lifting may be required. You need to be a confident and responsible driver with a friendly nature. You will need a full, clean driving license with no unspent convictions, access to your own vehicle and the appropriate motor insurance. Any penalty points will be considered on an individual basis.
Volunteers are needed for one-off or irregular deliveries of prescriptions to residents who are unable to collect items themselves. You will be asked to collect and deliver these items to residents in your local area with guidance on safe handling of medicines given. You need to be trustworthy and must have a friendly nature and good communication skills.
