Volunteer support for carers


VolunteerNet is a service for unpaid carers who live with the person they care for.

It is an easy and safe way for carers to access support from fully checked, trained and supervised volunteers. Carers can make arrangements quickly and directly online with registered volunteers.

Volunteers can

  • help with small practical tasks
  • spend time with the carer and the person they care for
  • provide carers with short respite by spending time with the cared for person, whilst the carer has some time for themselves
