Why volunteer for RISE?

Volunteers support many of the services we provide for families and young people within the North Wiltshire area. Volunteers provide a valuable source of experience and knowledge that enrich the services provided by the Trust.

We provide all our volunteers a full training and induction programme together with on-going support throughout their time with RISE.

Volunteering enables you to learn new skills, meet new people, develop your confidence and try out new things.  It is a great pathway to employment, and it enables you to support your local community, sharing your experience and knowledge.

The rewards of volunteering are immense; from the pleasure of knowing that you have brightened up someone’s day by being there to the satisfaction of seeing someone develop their potential and grow in confidence.

What do our volunteers say?

“Volunteering for RISE youth has been one of the top 10 best decisions in my life, probably ever.  Yes, it can be challenging on some days but it’s all part of the job that’s worth it all at the end of the day.  All of which becomes easier when working with such a brilliant team”.


“I love having the opportunity to explore and develop my passion to support children and parents to make a better tomorrow”.

The RISE Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults and expects all volunteers to share in this commitment. All volunteer roles are exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 and are subject to satisfactory references, and enhanced disclosure and barring service (DBS) check and training as appropriate for the role.
