  • Distributing flyers (going out into the community and offering our flyers to Doctor Surgeries, supermarkets, local shops etc)

  • Telephone Befrienders
  • Anyone on the Isle of Wight, to help support our activities and local social groups

In return, we’ll:

VOS saved my life. Now I feel I can give back to other veterans by volunteering with VOS.

VOS Volunteer

Being a volunteer is so rewarding and brings great joy to be able ‘to give something back’ to those who helped me. Also, volunteering at VOS is positive and a joy, especially to be surrounded by like minded volunteers who make the VOS Team.
