Home / Volunteering

Volunteering is a great way to gain confidence, meet new people, learn new skills, build your CV and keep active.

Volunteers play a vital role in Horton Housing, helping us to deliver good quality services for vulnerable people. We have a wide range of opportunities across Bradford, Calderdale, Kirklees and North Yorkshire. Full support and training will be given and out of pocket expenses will be reimbursed.
If you are interested in volunteering, please email volunteer.applications@hortonhousing.co.uk or contact us on 01274 753352.

Corporate volunteering

We have a variety of opportunities available for your team to develop community partnerships.

These range from:

  • Magical makeover – spend a day transforming a room or outside area at one of our hostels
  • One amazing day – support a client involvement day at one of our services. This can range from a walking group, arts and craft day or a day trip.
  • Skills based volunteering – spend a day with our clients to hold CV and interview workshops, what is expected of you in the workplace and also how to budget.

This is a great opportunity for you to come together as a team to test and build their skills and experience whilst doing something worthwhile and enjoyable for their local community.
