Volunteering

Volunteer work is unpaid work.  Volunteers offer their time and services to the community freely and help us to extend the range of services offered to our residents.

If you’re a caring person and would like to give your time to assist others we offer a variety of rewarding roles in the community. 

 

Some of the community activities and areas you can get involved in are:

 

Community bus service 

Drive a small or larger bus or provide assistance to passengers as needed.

 

English classes 

Help people whose home language isn’t English.  Work under the direction of language tutors either in groups or one-to-one.

Volunteers also help supervise young children in a crèche while their parents take part in English classes.

 

Home and Community Care shopping 

Take individual frail older people shopping on a regular basis. Your own car and a current driver's licence are essential for this volunteer service. 

 

Hamra Centre Library

Work with library staff on a variety of library tasks.

 

Homework help 

Help students with their maths, science and English homework. Work on a one-to-one basis under the supervision of a qualified instructor.

 

IMPACT

Justice of the Peace (JP) 

Registered JPs can volunteer their services to the public from an office in the Hamra Centre Library.
