Volunteers Wanted

We urgently need volunteers. We are looking for drivers with their own cars to take people to and from hospital appointments. We also need people with a few hours to spare to sit with or telephone someone who needs a bit of company, or for a carer who needs a break. Full training and support given. Out of pocket expenses paid. See how to apply on the right side of this page and visit the volunteer training section for upcoming details of our next training.


Location: Greater Manchester


Trustees and Special Advisers

We are always looking for people who would like to be a trustee or advisor to our charity. We are particularly interested in people who have had experience of life limiting illness, either as a patient, carer or family member.

Special Advisers provide an invaluable input of specialist skills that we need occasionally, and would find difficult to source or  pay for. We have previously had invaluable help with setting up training and developing of our organisation. We are hoping to expand and so are particularly interested in people living in communities as yet not supported by Being There.

If you wish to be involved with Being There and feel you have something to offer on an organisational level, please do get in touch by emailing trustees@beingthere.org.uk
