M​ay 2024

Are you able to use BSL and interested in volunteering for Manchester Deaf Centre? Why not come along to our volunteer recruitment event? 

When: Tuesday 18th June

Time: 10am to 12pm

Where: at Manchester Deaf Centre

What will happen at the event?

  • You will be able to look around the Centre and learn all about volunteering with us and the different volunteer roles we have available
  • Staff from all of our teams will be available to answer any questions you have
  • If you decide you would like to become a volunteer you will also be able to sign up on the day

What type of volunteer roles do you offer?

Volunteers are involved with most areas of our work. We are currently particularly keen to find volunteers to help with:

  • Wellbeing Groups
  • Children and Young People’s Groups
  • Reception
  • Administration roles 

However, there are many other opportunities available, for example, helping with social events, fundraising, or subtitling videos. We pride ourselves on being able to find a role for everyone.  

What level of BSL do I need to volunteer?

We welcome all volunteers who have completed a Level 1 BSL or equivalent course or are able to sign to an equivalent standard. You do not need to hold a qualification if you have signing skills at this level. 

What are the benefits of volunteering?

Volunteering is a great way to meet new people, practice using BSL, gain skills, build experience and confidence in a work environment and improve your CV. Many of our previous volunteers are now on our paid staff team. We have a structured volunteer offer. You will be fully supported in your role. We will help you to apply for your DBS check and pay for it. We also help volunteers with their travel expenses. 

Even if you are not yet sure if you want to volunteer, please do come along on the 18th to have a chat with us and find out more information. We look forward to meeting you. Please could you let us know you are coming by emailing James Stables:
