Each and every volunteer at National Star helps us to deliver the outstanding services and support that make a world of difference to the lives of people with disabilities. By joining the team you will be supporting learners and residents to develop their skills and confidence, enabling them to gain greater independence and realise their personal aspirations.
We offer volunteer opportunities supporting our fundraising and charity retail teams. We enjoy working with volunteers who come from different backgrounds and can offer different life experiences, and we particularly welcome applications from people with disabilities.
Depending on the opportunity, we may ask you to commit to a full induction programme and further training to support you in your role as a volunteer. National Star remains committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of young adults and children, and we require all volunteers to share this vision.
Protecting the health of National Star students and residents
To protect the health of our residential students and long-term residents, National Star is limiting access to some of its facilities. This applies to National Star, Ullenwood, Foundation House and Elizabeth House in Gloucester, Bradbury Gardens in Cheltenham, Matrixcare in Malvern and Ledbury Road, Hereford.
These sites are now considered ‘self-isolating’ households. This is a precautionary measure taking into consideration the latest Government advice around ‘at risk’ groups self-isolating for 12 weeks. Only staff, visiting professionals and close family members will be granted access. Stringent infection control measures are in place in order to enable this reduced access to continue.
