Volunteer Support Worker Volunteer Support Workers are individuals who volunteer to support individuals who enter the centre. They offer guidance and can sign post to other organisations and make relevant referrals in-house. VSW's can volunteer as often as they want, and to times that suit them. Becoming a VSW is often a way to meet new people as well as learn and develop new skills. To become a VSW you must undergo a enhanced check as you will be volunteering with vulnerable adults.
