VOLUNTEER AT THE PLACE IN SETTLE
We are always on the lookout for volunteers to assist in the day to day operation of The Place in Settle.
Volunteering is a great way to contribute to the local community, gain experience, and make a difference to other people's lives.
No skills are required (although, if you have a particular skill that we could put to use, then please let us know) and time commitment can be as much or little as you like.
Volunteering opportunities might include:
administrative tasks associated with running the charity
assisting during activities or events
meeting and greeting - i.e. being a friendly face to welcome visitors and help with signposting to services
If you have an idea or would like to discuss opportunities with us, please get in touch or call in to see us for a chat!

Current Volunteer Roles at The Place
These profiles are a general guide to the roles our volunteers may undertake, however there is great flexibility within each role and they can be adapted to suit each individual’s interest, experience, skills and knowledge.
Wellbeing Cafe Volunteer
This role is to provide support in our Wellbeing Cafe. That might include setting up the room, providing a warm welcome to participants, preparing simple refreshments, chatting or offering a listening ear and maybe joining in with the activities.
The Place has its own community allotment and volunteers with an interest in horticulture/growing are always needed to help plan, develop and maintain it. There is the potential for volunteers to have their own smaller plot for growing their own produce.
This vital role provides an initial, friendly welcome for anyone visiting or calling The Place. You would greet visitors, answer simple queries and provide information on activities and local organisations. You may answer the phone, take messages, help to open up rooms for hirers or undertake office administration jobs such as printing or laminating.
Community Connect Volunteer
This role would involve supporting local Social Prescribing Link Workers by helping patients access a range of services in the community which they would otherwise struggle to access because of their needs. This includes, but is not limited to, supporting to groups, appointments and assisting with any non-medical need as identified by the Link Worker. Support is limited where possible to 12 weeks.
