Apply to be a volunteer

Thank you for wanting to be part of the Parkside family.

At Parkside Residential Home we are lucky to have a dedicated team of volunteers, about 20 strong, who regularly come in to the home to help in a wide variety of ways such as serving mid-morning drinks, talking and playing games with the residents, helping in the garden and running social events. We interview all prospective volunteers to ensure those who do help are well matched to the home’s ethos and our residents’ needs.

We maintain full DBS checks on the whole team, both paid staff and volunteers.
