  • A warm welcome to our professional, friendly and supportive team
  • All expenses and DBS check paid
  • Policies and procedures to support you

“Thank you for the opportunity to improve my office based skills. Volunteering in the York Carers Centre office definitely helped me to gain a very interesting new job” from a previous volunteer.

“I wanted to get in touch to say how grateful I am for the opportunities I was given at York Carers Centre. I have approached my new role with more confidence, a broader skill base and the significance of the carer perspective is always at the forefront of my mind. This is all due to the opportunities I was given whilst working with you, the team, the volunteers and wonderful carers at York Carers Centre.” from placement student Emily.
