Volunteer with us

75% of respondents told us they felt they were making a difference for people with disabilities and Deaf people, either through volunteering or attending consultations.

We welcome the support of willing volunteers and are always on the look out for extra help, whether it be helping with events, community fundraising or general support in our offices.

Why volunteer with us?

Over the past twenty four months we have had two hundred and one volunteers working across our projects, helping with project delivery, fundraising, or joining project steering groups.  We offer a range of varied and exciting volunteer opportunities, across our projects and services which support people with a long term health condition, diability or who are part of the Deaf community. These opportunities include:

“I feel proud that I got involved and made a difference.” (Deaf volunteer) 

  • Carrying out mystery visits to local heritage sites to give their feedback on accessibility
  • Providing peer support over the telephone to other people with disabilities
  • The opportunity to act as ‘buddy’ for Deaf people, encouraging them to be more active
  • Providing office support, gaining valuable experience and skills
  • Supporting the See Hear Centre team to provide information and advice to people with sensory impairments
  • Helping with fundraising activities
  • Supporting people with disabilities to produce person centred plans
  • Work experience placements for students looking to experience a role in an office environment, events or community fundraising

“I really enjoy making a difference to the people and being part of the service.” (See Hear Centre volunteer)

About Us

Living Options Devon is a well respected user-led organisation which works to ensure that people with disabilities and Deaf people can live the life they choose. Set up in 1990 LOD is a registered charity (Charity N0. 1102489) and a company limited by guarantee (No. 4925281). Based in Exeter and Barnstaple, our charitable aims mean we we can offer services across the South West and share good practice throughout the UK. Being led and run by people with disabilities and Deaf people ensures LOD has first hand knowledge and understanding of the issues facing service users and so is very well placed to increase the influence and voice of Deaf and disabled people. We do this by providing education, training and services which enable people to live the lives they choose.
