Here at Arc, volunteers are invaluable to our work, providing all the extra important services that help our clients in many different ways.
We don't want our volunteers to be out of pocket, so we always offer to reimburse you for your travel. However, money is tight for us, as it is for everyone, so we will prioritise offering roles to people who live in our local area.
From collecting food donations, to running a skills workshop, our range of volunteering opportunities means there is something suitable for everyone and we’d love to have you on board!
Whatever you choose to do, we will do our best to ensure that your time spent with us is enjoyable and rewarding.
You can expect to be fully supported in your role, with a named professional to keep in touch with you on a regular basis.
All volunteers must be 18 years old or above and may need to have a full DBS check before working with clients.
Interested? Please take a look at our current volunteering opportunities below and complete the application form, or contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Emma Dunn for more information: [email protected]
Once we've received your form we'll invite you for an informal chat.

"At Arc we are not all the same. We come from all walks of life and a wide variety of backgrounds. We draw on these differences in who we are, what we’ve experienced and how we think to create services that work for everyone. We celebrate the diverse and inclusive community that is Arc, empowering clients, staff and volunteers to connect, belong and grow."
Collecting food donations for our busy hostel in Taunton, Lindley House.
We are looking for someone to collect donations from private addresses and deliver them to our properties in Taunton and Bridgwater.
We are looking for upbeat, energetic people to attend community events in Somerset on our behalf, such as Taunton Live, and Armed Forces Day. These events usually last a whole day and take place at the weekend. We aim to raise some funds and also raise awareness of homelessness.
