Learn new skills, meet new people or figure out what you want to do as a career. Make a difference to the lives of people with learning disabilities, mental health difficulties, or dementia. Volunteer for Guideposts!

Ways you can volunteer

If you’re not sure you would fit with any of our existing roles, but would still like to see how you can help Guideposts, we’d be happy to talk to you and fit you in! We believe everyone has something they can contribute. Send us an enquiry here.

Lead or assist with one of our Zoom groups, write for us, or help us prepare activity packs – we have roles from as little as an hour a week of commitment!

We have groups running in Oxfordshire, Gloucestershire and Hertfordshire, and a huge range of activities and socials to get involved in.

Get your hands dirty at our community garden in Oxfordshire or become a befriender and take our members on day trips!

You can make a huge difference by enabling someone with a learning disability to get to a day centre they attend.

Help one of our members get out of the house and into the community with our one-to-one support schemes.

Get experience in HR, finance, fundraising or other office work while contributing to a good cause!
