The Society depends on volunteers to help run the Social Clubs, Charity Shop and Outings. Volunteers also help to run activities at Open Door, Westwood and at Active Arts. There are a wide variety of activities you can help with at various times of day. If you tell us what you are interested in and what times you would like to volunteer we can try to match you to an activity and time that suits you.

Our current volunteers run the Charity Shop, Evening Clubs, Outings, assist with activities at Open Door and help coach the South East Special Olympic Short Mat Bowls team.

Volunteering at Hastings & Bexhill Mencap can be very rewarding and is a great experience! If you are looking to gain some work experience within the care sector or just want to share a skill and time we would love to hear from you.

All volunteers will need to have a CRB check with us. We will organise and pay for this.

To become a volunteer please download the application form or for more information please contact us.
