The Trust

Become a Volunteer Buddy

Through becoming a buddy at Shore Trust, you’ll make a new friend and build a special connection. You’ll get out into your local community, do fun activities, and share experiences together along the way.

Being someone’s buddy isn’t just about giving; others tell us they get a real sense of fulfilment from helping and being involved. At the same time you help them grow more independent and get involved in the community.

The skills you’ll gain through being a Shore Trust Buddy are invaluable for future careers and volunteering opportunities, developing skills of empathy, patience, listening and social skills.

Helping others is the secret to living a happier, healthier and more meaningful life. Those who reach out and connect with others boost their own happiness and mental health. It’s a win win!

We look forward to hearing from you!
