Do you enjoy meeting people and putting them at their ease? One of Marriage Care’s most valued services is our relationship counselling. However, we cannot offer this service without a chaperone (receptionist) to welcome clients and stay in reception during the counselling session. We are looking for a friendly and helpful volunteer to spend a couple of hours on a weekday evening, sharing with other volunteers. We will pay local travelling expenses to the premises.
