Volunteering for Sounds Better
Volunteering can bring both personal and social benefits. Perhaps you are retired and would like to use your skills to contribute to your local community, or would like to meet new people, develop skills to start work, or prepare to return to work. If you are a Health and Social Care, Allied Health Professional or music student, volunteering with Sounds Better can give valuable insight into the lives of people living with a long term health condition or learning disability.
What can Sounds Better offer you as a volunteer?
Depending on the role, we can offer training in facilitation, experience in working with people with long term health conditions or learning disability, and a way to connect with your local community. We will pay out of pocket expenses (including travel) for any volunteering role.
Do I need a DBS check?
This will depend on the role you will be volunteering in and who you will be in contact with. We will discuss this with you more throughout the recruitment and induction process.

Fundraising /business support volunteer
Do you have business and/or fundraising skills and would like to support a small, but growing CIC to reach the next level? We are looking for someone who could spare a few hours a month to help us develop our income generation and sales strategy, and then put it into practice. Ideal for someone who would like to ‘give back’ and wants to use their business skills to do so. If this appeals, contact us for an informal chat.
We work in London and the South with people with long term health conditions, people with learning disabilities and intergenerationally. Find out more about our past and current projects here.
We are all community music practitioners alongside running Sounds Better CIC, so understand the training needs, the challenges, and the techniques that are most effective in the room better than anyone.
