What we offer

Induction, support and supervision

If you decide to volunteer with us, a supervisor will be allocated to you once you begin your placement. They will provide you with ongoing support and supervision and will work closely with you throughout your time at WDP. There is also a central volunteer services team that will support you while on your placement.

In addition, you can expect:

  • A full induction to your role and continuous local training
  • Access to central staff training opportunities
  • Regular Supervision
  • Reimbursement of reasonable travel and lunch expenses 

Support into employment

At WDP, we offer our volunteers bespoke application and interview skills training which will help them move towards paid employment. Volunteers also have access to internally advertised jobs and are offered continued professional support by their supervisor.
