Volunteer vacancies

"We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give." Winston Churchill

Every Abbeyfield House is managed by a local Abbeyfield Society made up of volunteers in a range of roles. We welcome new members to all our local Societies. Current vacancies:

Abbeyfield Masterton: Treasurer
Abbeyfield Masterton provides a home to 10 residents in Church St. Soon we will begin a redevelopment project to build an extra four studios to meet anticipated demand. We are seeking a new volunteer to join the friendly committee to fill the valuable role of Treasurer.  As accounting is professionally provided at present, this is more an oversight role with responsibility for the budget, approving payments, and so on. A thorough induction will be provided and support is available from our national office. If you have a heart for older people and have admin, book-keeping or accounting experience or are willing to learn, we would love to hear from you.  For more information please email Laurie Williams.
