What is volunteering?

Volunteering is about giving your time to a good cause. You don’t get paid, but you do get the chance to use your talents, develop new skills, and experience the pleasure that comes from making a real difference to other people’s lives, as well as your own.

Who can do it?

Anyone. Whatever your age, background or work experience, you will have a skill that someone needs. No matter how busy you are, there will be something that you can do. It can be trickier to find volunteer roles if you are under 16, but not impossible. Just ask us.


What can I do?

Anything. (Almost.) You might be interested in working on the ‘front line’ or perhaps you’d be happier ‘behind the scenes’; either way, there’s something for everyone.

If you have professional skills that you would like to use at The Community Hub please contact us on 020 8889 6938.


How do I do it?

All of the available opportunities are on on request..

You will be directed to the Do-it search engine – that’s where the opportunities from all Volunteer Centres are kept.  You will be able to find details of volunteer roles from all over the country.  But if you’re looking for something close to home, then be sure to enter your postcode.  Once you have found something that you like, you can register your details and you will be emailed further information

If you are unsure where to begin, our First Steps page is a good place to start.

If you would like to speak to one of our trained volunteer advisors, then pop into the Hub’s Wood Green office.

No appointment needed.
