Volunteering with Lunch Positive
We could not provide our service without friendly, willing volunteers who work well as part of a team.
Volunteering can be a very rewarding and enjoyable activity. Volunteering is often described as a fantastic way to ‘get out’ or ‘give something to the community’, and is a great way to meet people and make new friends.
Relevant experience, or an understanding of HIV are not necessarily required, as full training is given in understanding HIV, and in the tasks involved in the voluntary roles we have available. However there are certain attributes which are required of all volunteers and these include acceptance, the ability to be genuine and non-judgemental, an understanding of the need for absolute confidentiality, commitment; and being able to work with others as part of a team.
Throughout the year we regularly recruit new Session Volunteers, and depending on what vacancies we have these roles might include cooking, helping in the kitchen, or helping in the dining area.
We pay out of pocket expenses for travelling to volunteer, and try our very hardest to take account of individuals availabilities and time commitments.

You can apply to become a volunteer by completing our online volunteer application form.
We will then get back to you, tell you more about volunteering and hopefully arrange for you to come along and meet each other.
We look forward to hearing from you and talking about what we have to offer
