Become a Volunteer

Who can volunteer?

Anyone
who has a spare morning/afternoon/ evening or just a couple of hours a week
can be a volunteer for the centre. You can offer your services on a regular
weekly/fortnightly/ monthly rota, or join our volunteer team as a ‘bank’ helper
to cover short notice, sickness or holidays.


Do I need any skills or qualifications?

No, if you have a special interest or subject we will try to use your skills in the most relevant areas. If you just want to help there are plenty of different areas needing the time and commitment of volunteers. You may be interested in training for new skills as part of your voluntary role.

What next?

Telephone or come along to the centre and meet us. Fill in a volunteer's application form
and supply two references from work or personal and let us know your availability.
We will try to fit you into an area of your choice. Once we receive your application
we will invite you in for an informal chat.


Will I be out of pocket?

We will refund any expenses incurred that relates to the activities of the centre,
however we are unable to reimburse any personal expenses including travel expenses.


Will I receive training?

We will support you to get the most from volunteering, where necessary
we will provide training and aim to fund this from our resources.


Where will I be useful?

Greeting, Opening & Closing - The centre is staffed mornings and afternoon by two volunteers who are responsible for greeting users and helping them with any queries.
They also open and close the centre. The duties include serving teas and coffees,
cash handling and generally assisting in the smooth running of the centre
and... making users feel welcome.


The Shop - Volunteers are required to help run the shop, sorting and pricing stock,
making stock displays, and selling during the shop’s opening hours.

Activities - The centre offers a wide variety of activities to users such as craft classes.
Volunteers are required to help facilitate the activities.

Internet Café & Guided IT - Volunteers are needed to be on hand for ad hoc user queries
in the internet café and to train users on a one-to-one or one-to-many basis.

Regular Events - Regular events such as local groups using the centre require volunteers
to be on hand to open/close the centre, give users information about community at 67
and provide refreshments.

Individual Events - Community at 67 often have one-off events held in our premises, if you are able to volunteer to assist at one of these events, that would most welcome

Administration, Management etc. - The committee welcomes suggestions from
volunteers who may have other skills and ideas.



Do you have your own ideas?
