Get Involved

Hettys originally started as a voluntary organisation in 1996, by a small group of mums who themselves had suffered the pain and heartache of being affected by a loved ones drug misuse. Through their passion and determination to support others in situations similar to themselves, Hettys has grown into the unique organisation it is today.

People volunteer for many reasons. Some of our previous and existing volunteers have at one time or another been clients of the service themselves, and can gain great satisfaction from putting this experience and knowledge to good use by donating thier time to our cause. Others, students and young people particularly volunteer to gain the work experience and skills they need to help them get a job or further their career development.
