Volunteering for Wellbeing Monmouthshire

Doing something useful or ‘giving’ can help people to feel positive and valued; this can improve our health and wellbeing. Volunteering provides meaningful roles and activities within our community; this can boost confidence and give a sense of purpose and belonging. We have all sorts of things that you could help with. If you have particular interests or skills please tell us and will do our best to find an opportunity to suit you.

Our volunteering opportunities are always changing and we have opportunities to match your individual interests as well as time commitment.

If this sounds like something you could help with, please contact us on 01600 887568 or email us at  wellbeing@bridgescentre.org.uk

Below are some of the activities that our volunteers dedicate their time to, this list is not exhaustive though, please contact us for more information and an informal chat.

Enable someone to get out and about... 


Become a volunteer driver and help people to get to facilities and appointments.  Commitment can be as big or small as you like, whether you help every week or just every now and again.


Our Community Car Scheme is always on the look out for new drivers and if you would like to learn more about the scheme click Here

Provide some company... 

Over a million elderly people in the UK describe themselves as lonely. Providing some companionship for an elderly person is a simple and effective way to make a positive impact on an elderly persons quality of life.

A simple gesture such as visiting someone who can’t easily get out themselves, for a cup of tea and a chat can make the world of difference.

Become a Trishaw ‘Pilot’... 


It’s never too late to learn a completely new skill, such as piloting a Trishaw!

The Cycling without Age scheme launched in Copenhagen in 2012 and is now represented in 52 countries worldwide. It offers the chance for elderly or disabled people to get out on a bike, enjoy the feeling of wind in their hair and see new places. We have trishaws in Monmouth, Abergavenny and Caldicot.

You will be given lots of support and extra training and we are always in need of a new pilot or two.

Assist in running group activities... 


Could you help to organise activities such as arts and crafts, board games and reminiscence at one of the social groups we support around the county?

Help someone in a practical way... 


Provide help with things like gardening, shopping or dog walking. Maybe your interests would align with the needs of one of our many elderly folks in Monmouthshire, why not get in touch to find out?
