Get involved

Calling all potential volunteers! Do you have that special something?

John, Emmaus Norwich trustee

Our volunteers are a rich mixture of people of all ages and backgrounds, who have sympathy with the values and objectives of Emmaus Norwich and want to help the community.  Volunteers need to have good social skills – be able to chat and listen with interest – and have a good sense of humour.  Our drivers need to be safe and competent, and able to work with others.  volunteers are not expected to provide support to companions.

We aim to give volunteers meaningful responsibilities, effective supervision and recognition for work done.  You’re likely to get to know the companions well.  This is immensely positive and one of the main reasons why Emmaus communities work so well. 

Discover the feel-good benefits of friendship, sharing interests and skills as a valued member of our community. Just one session a week could make a huge difference.

So if you looking for something interesting to do and want to share our journey, please get in touch. We reimburse reasonable travel expenses and provide a meal if you work a full day, as well as offering training and development opportunities for our committed volunteers.
