CPL Volunteers contribute to our mission of an inclusive society for all people; extending social connections with clients, reducing social isolation; and enhancing CPL services by sharing skills, time and mutual interests. We are always looking for volunteers to come and join our team, so we'd love to hear from you!

Have you got the gift of the gab? Pull up a chair and share your company with your community!
Some people are great at making cakes, some people are great at making gardens grow – but do we ever hear about people who are great are making conversation?! If you can make a great cup of tea, and love nothing more than chatting about… well just about anything, we can’t wait to welcome you as a volunteer social companion.
