As a community-led organisation, we are keen to involve our residents in our work whilst, at the same time, offering the opportunity for residents to gain valuable work experience and develop key skills through volunteering.
In addition, volunteering has many benefits, including meeting new people, sharing experienes and skills, broadening knowledge and interest, and it is proven to help boost mental, physical, and emotional wellbeing.
