The heart of Jimmy’s

Volunteers are at the heart of Jimmy’s and the work we do.

We rely on their kindness, commitment and empathy to provide the best possible service to our guests.

In return, we maintain a safe, supportive environment ensuring they get the most out of their time spent with us and feel truly valued for their role in the Jimmy’s community.

All walks of life

From 18 to (almost!) 80, our volunteers come from all walks of life and bring a huge variety of skills and experiences.

From students to civil servants, researchers to retired professionals and stay-at-home mums to senior executives.

From corporate to individuals, there is a role for everyone in our volunteer team.
