Featured Volunteer Opportunities 11.02.17

Spend your time making a difference by helping refugees find a friendly face and provide advice and support to rough sleepers. There's also the chance to learn some upcycling skills and get your hands dirty at a welcoming allotment.

Our opportunities this week offer you a fantastic chance to use your time to really make a difference. Help refugees find a friendly face in a new place, or help provide support and advice to rough sleepers. You can also try your hand at events and fundraising with a wonderful children's charity, perfect for gaining experience at the start of your career.

If you'd like to try your hand at something new, there's also our Social Action taking place next weekend at the RAF museum - learn how to upcycle your furniture and household goods.

As always, our weekly drop-in is open for you can talk to one of our friendly team members face to face to find other opportunities if these don't suit you. It's entirely free and there's no need to book.
