Nearly all of our services are supported by our valued volunteers. We simply could not survive without them. Our volunteers work as: Appropriate Adults, Independent Visitors, Money Advisers, Housing Advisers, Trustees, Mentors and more.


In return we offer free, regular training, forums, events and support. All volunteers must undergo certain training before they can work in the field and they shadow more experienced volunteers for a period too.

Our volunteers come from all walks of life, and tell us that they gain the following:

  • Retired people: get to use their experience, keep up to date, meet new people and learn new skills
  • Jobseekers and those between jobs: learn new skills, gain experience valuable for their CV, meet new people and choose their own hours
  • Mums/dads with children at school/college/university: learn new skills, meet new people, keep up to date, give something back
  • Students: Gain valuable experience to accompany their studies, learn new skills, meet new people
  • Full-time employed people: choose their own hours around their job, meet new people, learn new skills

As a registered charity, Anglia Care Trust is totally reliant on funding to continue the work that we do. In the present economic climate, the demand for our services is ever increasing and we believe this trend will continue for the next few years at least.

As a local charity, helping local communities, we rely not only on local authorities to continue our funding, but on national grant and trust awarding bodies to help us raise funds. We also look to the local community to help support the work we do.

There are many ways you can help to support us financially as well. You can make a one off donation or set up a regular payment to us. Remember, no gift is too small.

You can leave us a gift in your will – helping us to reduce crime and anti social behaviour and support the vulnerable in the future. If you don’t already have a will, it is a good idea to consult a solicitor who can help you ensure that your wishes are carried out after your death. Remembering a charity in your will is also an efficient way of giving. Because charities are exempt from Inheritance Tax, all of your gift to Anglia Care Trust will go towards supporting our work.


For more information on donations and leaving a gift in your will, please contact Jane Simpson on 01473 622888 or email her at [email protected]
