Volunteer with us

Volunteers are crucial to the effective functioning of the Law Centre. We value all our volunteers and rely on them to help us to continue to deliver our services to our local community.

By volunteering with us, you will gain experience within a voluntary sector environment, an understanding of the work carried out by Law Centres, and, we hope, some enjoyment and satisfaction from your involvement.

We’re grateful to all our volunteers for the contribution they make to the delivery of our services.

We currently have the following volunteer opportunities:
