Volunteer at Woody's

Woody’s Lodge is always on the lookout for more volunteers to add to our team. More than anything, we need your time! Our volunteers provide support for veterans in a variety of ways from providing one-on-one guidance with form filling to ensure they’re getting the right financial or health support to sitting down with a brew and a biscuit to have a light chat with a veteran that might have become a bit isolated. We often have activity days to help families re-engage with each other and we’re always on the lookout for volunteers for these days, helping to make tea, run activities and generally, being a friendly face.

If you think you have some time to volunteer with us at either our North or South Wales sites, Woody’s Lodge would love to hear from you! Contact the team on 01446 781792 (South Wales) or 01492 533954 (North Wales). You can also drop us an email at [email protected]
