Become a Volunteer

The Diamond Centre’s success hinges on its excellent team of volunteer instructors and helpers – without them we could not operate.

In 2000 we won the Sport England Volunteer Investment Programme Award – an award for excellence in training, organising, and retaining   volunteers – and in 2009 we were given The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service.

Many of our volunteers start with no previous experience of horses or the disabled. They come from all walks of life. Some help at Diamond for a couple of hours each week and some for a couple of days.

Our junior helpers start at 13 and, once they have completed their basic training, they work alternate Saturdays on a rota basis.

For those who would prefer not to work with horses, help is always needed to run the servery or maintain the gardens.
