Volunteering for SEAS

Volunteering with SEAS is a meaningful way to help some of the vulnerable people who live in the Borough of Southend. It’s also an opportunity to develop and enjoy new experiences; you’ll connect with your community, meet new people, learn new skills and share what you know.

Whether doing essential admin in the office or working directly with SEAS clients, our volunteers contribute towards making difference to our client’s lives.

Our existing team of experienced, peer advocate volunteers will always be happy to mentor and help you, where there may be particular aspects of advocacy you are unsure about.

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer for SEAS, you’ll receive professional training along with our staff. You’ll be classed very much so, as a valued member of our team, being invited to take part in social activities.
