Volunteering & Community Engagement

Here at Mary & Joseph House we offer a wide variety of opportunities to get involved in volunteering in house and within the wider community. Volunteering is a great way to build confidence and self-esteem, as well as learn new skills and add structure to your day.

Residents have the option to spend their time assisting our Housekeeping or Catering Team regardless of abilities or mental capacity, helping our residents to learn or refresh practical domestic skills needed for their recovery.

Andy, our activities co-ordinator, liaises with community organisations such as Back on Track and Manchester Dogs Home in order to cater to a wide range of interests.

Many of our residents enjoy spending time in our award winning gardens, and there is always plenty to do! Therapeutic Staff, work with residents in areas such as garden maintenance and vegetable and herb growing, as well as home maintenance skills like woodwork and painting and decorating.

Staff can also support you to arrange your own volunteering placement should you wish.
