Volunteering at Project Colt 

Volunteering with us is a positive and rewarding experience. We encourage volunteers to develop their existing skills and acquire new ones for their own personal development and enjoyment. We want to turn people’s goodwill and good intentions into positive action.

Volunteers are treated in the same respectful and courteous manner as paid members of staff. We ensure that all volunteers are engaged in roles that will be fulfilling and rewarding to them personally and to the work of Project Colt.

The benefits of volunteering: 

What you can expect from us: 

Personal satisfaction, achievement, and enjoyment.
To be treated with respect without discrimination in a safe working environment.
Gaining added skills and valuable experience.
The opportunity for self-development, through training and support & the opportunity to receive regular feedback.
Helping other people to improve their quality of life.
The reasonable out of pocket expenses reimbursed.
Occupying time in a meaningful and constructive way.
Guidance regarding work related opportunities – support with CV building, references, and online job applications.

All volunteers are given a formal induction to Project Colt prior to commencing. Once inducted volunteers are given access to a variety of training courses, for example: First Aid, Health and Safety, IT Skills, Food and Hygiene Qualifications, Fire Warden Training and much more, depending on the area of work that best suits your skill set.

Volunteers may attend regular meetings with their Volunteer Co-Ordinator to discuss progress and identify any areas where training may be appropriate.
