Volunteer for us

Use your skills to become a Matthew Project superhero!

Our volunteering programme offers brilliant, rewarding, and sometimes life-changing experiences for people who are interested in supporting our community or learning skills related to social care, education, and mental health.

The Matthew Project empowers young people and adults to overcome drugs, alcohol, and mental health issues so they can live their lives more fully, including specialist services for both family members impacted by others’ substance misuse and for veterans. Our people are committed to making a difference to others' lives through giving hope and providing professional, creative, and compassionate support. 

Our volunteers are an integral part of the Matthew Project team.  We offer volunteering opportunities at our Norwich headquarters and at other venues across Norfolk. Volunteer roles can vary from regular long-term commitments to ad hoc or one-off involvement.  A comprehensive list of possible roles is included in the Volunteer Application Form.  

We welcome volunteers from all backgrounds, with diverse skills and knowledge, and with "lived experience" and we ask potential volunteers to reflect this in their application form. We are dedicated to equality, diversity, and inclusivity and we ask all potential volunteers to complete our online EDI Monitoring Form. Please click here to access the form.

Please note that for certain client-facing volunteering roles you will be required to have an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check prior to starting your volunteering.  Other roles usually require a basic DBS check. 

The Matthew Project will provide the necessary training and support to enable you to fulfil the requirements of your volunteering role(s) and to ensure safeguarding requirements are met. We will also reimburse you for certain expenses.
