Our volunteers lighten the load, giving practical help and a listening ear. Bristol Buddies is a growing project and we are expanding our team.

  • Excellent listening skills
  • Reliable, punctual and friendly
  • Able to work independently with guidance and support
  • Able to recognise boundaries and respect confidentiality
  • Be physically able to undertake practical support activities

What you can gain from this opportunity

  • Get involved in your local community and do something to make a difference
  • Help support someone with cancer
  • Meet new people
