We need your time, creativity, experience and knowledge to fill our wide range of volunteer opportunities, and there are lots of benefits for you, too.
Volunteering is a great way to have fun, make new friends, learn new skills, enhance your CV, increase your self-confidence, and give back to your community.
You will feel a sense of fulfilment knowing you are helping patients and their families, people living with life-limiting illnesses, those who are bereaved, and older people in our community who are lonely or isolated.
There are volunteering opportunities to fit whatever time you have available, and we are flexible to make sure it fits in with your life.
We have a fantastic team of all ages, backgrounds and experiences, and we would love for you to join us.
Community volunteers (Mountbatten Neighbours) are local heroes who tackle loneliness in their area by spending an hour each week with an older person living with a chronic life-limiting illness, frailty, or someone who is feeling isolated from their local community.
Retail volunteers support our warehouse and ten shops across the Island and are an incredibly important part of generating the vital income needed to keep our services running.
Fundraising volunteers help our events to run smoothly, ensuring they are as successful as possible. Our fundraising events contribute to the £11.5 million we have to raise each year to provide our services for free to Island people.
Volunteering has many benefits for you, including meeting new people, giving something back to your community, and gaining valuable work experience.
Amanda wanted to give back after using Mountbatten’s services to live well with her cancer diagnosis. She joined the team volunteering in our Shanklin shop, where she’s made friends and memories for life.
