Volunteering as a carer

Volunteering is an amazing way to spend your past-time. It’s a rewarding experience, through which you can give back to the community and help people in need. According to the Institute for Volunteering Research, around 12 million adults in the United Kingdom volunteer regularly with an organisation. The King’s Fund estimates that in the health and social care services, there are around 3 million regular volunteers - the same number as the paid staff.

IVR also estimates that there are around 17,000 care homes in England. These range from large private care groups to small family businesses or charity organisations.

You could volunteer as a carer if you simply want to do something to fill your time. It’s also a great idea to start volunteering as a carer earlier on, such as in your teenage years, if you are planning to work in the care sector in the future.
