Volunteering Opportunities

We have a range of rewarding opportunities for volunteers who share our passion to work with people who are turning their lives around.

The workshop is open from 9 a.m. to 3.30 p.m. Mondays to Fridays.  Volunteers are welcome for whole days on one or more days per week. All volunteers are also welcome to share a free lunch with trainees on the days they volunteer.

Get in touch with us if you can help us in any of the following ways:

Woodwork Workshop Volunteers

Volunteers help to supervise the Woodwork Workshop, under the direction of the Workshop Manager.

Training in woodworking techniques, machinery operation and health and safety are provided.

Requirements:

  • Aptitude for practical skills: able to pick up easily how to do woodwork projects and use the machinery
  • Able to explain to trainees skills you have learned
  • Able to relate to people who have had significant disadvantages in life and are in the process of turning their lives around
  • Personal Christian faith or sympathy with the ethos of the charity

Driver Volunteers

Driver volunteers typically collect trainees and bring them to the workshop in the morning and then take them home at the end of the day.

Car mileage expenses are available.

Requirements:

  • Able to use own car
  • Able to relate to people who have had significant disadvantages in life and are in the process of turning their lives around
  • Personal Christian faith or sympathy with the ethos of the charity

Cooking Volunteers

Volunteers cook lunch in the workshop kitchen.  A simple one-course lunch is produced for about 12 to 18 people each day, sometimes using food donated by supermarkets.

We serve lunch at about 12.30 each day.

The charity meets the cost of all food, within a set budget.

Requirements:

  • Able to cook lunches for 10 to 18 people, to a defined budget
  • Able to do shopping for the food required would also be an advantage, but not essential

Optionally, volunteers could help teach trainees to cook and involve a trainee in cooking and/or shopping each day, with the additional requirements:

  • Able to relate to people who have had significant disadvantages in life and are in the process of turning their lives around.
  • Personal Christian faith or sympathy with the ethos of the charity
