People volunteer for many different reasons. Some have a connection with the Police Treatment Centres through work, family members and friends, some wish to give something back to their community, others come to strengthen their CV by developing new skills. No matter what the reason, volunteering is an excellent way to meet new people and make friends.
Donor Recruitment and Charity Engagement Support: volunteers to help with adhoc administrative tasks i.e. stuffing envelopes, updating records, distributing leaflets etc.
We are also looking for Ambassadors; the DRCE team regularly attend student officer inputs and pre-retirement seminars to ensure these groups are aware of the benefits of PTC and SGPCT. If you would like to find out more; see here.
