Why did we create Rockstars?
2020 has taught us a lot about the dedication, resilience and kindness of our homeowners and our teams. It’s strengthened our belief that community starts with the McCarthy Stone family – our employees and homeowners alike, and that as a business we have a responsibility to give something back. One of the ways we can do that is through volunteering.
Where does the name come from?
The name Rockstars combines the two qualities all our volunteers possess. They are our ‘rocks’, the foundations of our business, they are strong and they can be relied upon to help. They are also ‘stars’ - brilliant people doing a fantastic job - we are extremely grateful to them.
It's the new buddy scheme but better
You can make a difference
Volunteers make a vital contribution to the happiness and wellbeing of our communities, sharing a range of skills and knowledge and supporting people in numerous ways, big and small. Opportunities include things like helping out at social events or befriending homeowners who are having to stay at home more. And the great news is that the benefits of volunteering are felt by everyone involved, not least the volunteers. Most volunteers find it extremely rewarding and enjoy an increased sense of purpose and wellbeing.
What skills do I need?
How much time do I need to commit?
By signing up you are expressing your interest in volunteering - there is no commitment. The app gives you the option to browse opportunities in your area and help out as little or often as you can – whether that’s an hour a week or an afternoon a year, it’s entirely up to you.
