Volunteers

Our volunteers make an enormous difference to the lives of people with learning disabilities. Their time, skills and enthusiasm bring so much to the people we support and really do change lives for the better. Becoming a volunteer brings huge personal rewards too!

For the first time, we have some opportunities to volunteer with our Fundraising team based in Central Milton Keynes.

Office support

We need computer-savvy volunteers to support our fundraising team. If you’re a confident user of Word and Excel we’d love to hear from you. This role would be perfect if you would like to use your existing skills or to develop them and gain experience of working as part of a small, busy and friendly fundraising team. You’ll need to like working in a team and be happy to turn your hand to a range of tasks.

Time commitment: ideally we’re looking for a minimum commitment of 2 to 4 hours per week during office hours.

Event volunteers

Want to help us out but can’t be tied down to a regular slot? We’re always looking for volunteers to support us at events large and small. You might welcome guests at an event, sell raffle tickets, or pack bags in your local supermarket. You sign up and we call when we need you! A few hours a year can make a huge difference to what we can achieve.

Time commitment: occasional throughout the year

Please note that an enhanced criminal record check through the Disclosure & Barring Service is required for all of these positions.

Benefits

If volunteering is a way for you to connect with your community MacIntyre is a great place to meet new people. A lot of people who join us continue working for us or being supported by us for many years.

If you are looking to gain experience, ease your way back into work or learn new skills volunteering for us gives you plenty of opportunities to expand your network and learn many transferable skills including:

  • accessibility
  • event management
  • Person Centred Approaches
