Elizabeth House Volunteers


Elizabeth House relies on our many volunteers who give so generously of their time and energy. At least ten people are needed to assist on any one day, supporting the manager, administrator and cook.

We are always looking for volunteers to help either on a regular basis or as a backup for when people are on holiday or ill.

Do you have an hour or two to spare during the week? Would you like to help the team at Elizabeth House Day Centre? If so, we need volunteers to help with:

Making and serving morning coffee or afternoon tea

10am – 12noon: preparing and serving coffee, preparing lunch tables
1.30-3pm: Making tea, if needed

Helping with lunches

12noon-1.30pm: Serving out lunches (we have a cook), clearing tables, loading & unloading dishwasher, sweeping dining room floor.

Leading activities with our members
