Types of Volunteering

There are many ways you can support the Sussex Beacon by volunteering your time. Opportunities include:

  • Retail volunteering in one of our charity shops
  • Helping out on our van, collecting and delivering donations
  • Fielding calls and helping on our reception desk
  • Maintaining The Sussex Beacon’s lovely gardens by joining our team of volunteer gardeners
  • Helping with serving meals in our gorgeous dining room or in the Inpatient Unit
  • Supporting the Women and Families Service
  • Office and admin volunteering

I have been a volunteer here for over 2.5 years. My role is based at The Sussex Beacon’s busy reception desk. I take phone calls, direct callers to the appropriate departments, receive visitors and bring a bit of fun to the department!

I decided to become a volunteer because I wanted to give back to the community. 

I really enjoy meeting and greeting visitors. The staff are delightful too!
