VOLUNTEERING

Volunteering Opportunities

Share your talents, make friendships and enrich people’s lives.

We are always looking for enthusiastic individuals to join the growing and dynamic volunteering team at Kisharon.

You will receive an induction, training and continual support and no previous experience is necessary.

For younger volunteers, every hour spent with Kisharon counts towards the Yoni Jesner award, or the volunteering element of the Duke of Edinburgh Awards. Young teenagers also help to make their bar or bat mitzvah more meaningful.

Are you a personal trainer, tennis player, chess player, arts and crafts enthusiast, baker, exercise enthusiast, walking or running buddy? If you have a hobby that you would like to share with the people we support, we’d love to hear from you.

Are you a singer or performer? Many people in our supported living schemes love to listen to music and to sing.
Volunteer by singing or playing classical, opera, contemporary Jewish or secular music.
