Volunteering

As a volunteer driven community centre, our volunteers are central to everything we do. You will find our friendly volunteers throughout the centre at the reception, garden, kitchen and as tutors running our courses. All our staff are vital to our success as a dynamic and thriving centre that meets the needs of our growing community.

A number of rewarding volunteer roles are available within our centre including:

Tutoring

We have a great team of friendly and talented tutors and facilitators who specialise in sharing their skills and knowledge with course participants through a range of programs. We are always open to new ideas and courses, so if there is something you want to try, or have a talent you would like to share please let us know.

Maintenance Team

There are always plenty of areas that need that extra bit of support, and our wonderful General Maintenance team certainly provides that. They make sure our rooms are ready for courses, classes or facility hire, and if something needs fixing, they ensure it gets done.
