As a charity Shopmobility Belfast depends on volunteers to help us deliver our service. They are hugely important to us and our members.
Without Volunteers we would not be able to provide our service
We are currently seeking enthusiastic, reliable and committed volunteers to join our team. If it appeals to you or someone you know please encourage them to contact us. We will give you full training and out of pocket expenses and you’ll meet new people and make a real difference to the lives of our members.
To the right is one of our volunteers
What does Volunteering involve?
Volunteering involves being happy and friendly and willing to help others.
Shopmobility Belfast is stationed over a few locations (e.g. Shopping Centres, Hospitals and two locations in Belfast City Centre). We are here to help people get from A to B by using our service.
As a Volunteer I am expected to be kind, happy, friendly and help with the process of signing up new members, reassessing current members, safety checking (e.g. steering, tyres, seat, horn & lights also the chargers) all equipment to make sure it’s all in full working order on exiting & returning to the unit. Scooters should also be cleaned after every use to ensure they are suitable for the next user and the unit should also be kept clean at all times.
What Skills or qualities are required for the role?
No qualifications are required as full training will be provided at a pace suitable for you. You will learn customer service skills, computer database (hard copy also), answering phone calls & safety checking equipment. I enjoy always being happy to help and meet and greet everyone with a smile.
What inspired you to Volunteer?
I wanted to become a volunteer as I like to help people, it makes me feel happy. I also wanted to learn new skills and also meet new people. I volunteer 2 days per week with Shopmobility Belfast and the joy and happiness on members faces when you have helped them makes it all worthwhile.
Would you encourage others to Volunteer?
I most definitely would, YES, you get to meet new people who are friendly and happy to make you part of a team. The happiness you feel after helping someone doesn’t just arrived unless the effort is put in.
