Featured Volunteering Opportunities
Help support these fun and enjoyable sessions for local pre-school families. Kitchen Club is an opportunity for families to cook, eat, play and learn together. If you love working with food and families in a positive environment, get in touch – no previous experience needed!
Luton Van Driver
Are you free on a weekday 10am-1pm to help drive the Foodbank’s Luton van around Hackney? The role involves loading the van using a tail lift, moving stock around on dollies, and carrying crates, so it’s quite physical. Applicants must have a valid, clean driving license.
The Garden Classroom
Community Garden Volunteer
Want to connect with nature while staying close to home? Volunteer in your local community garden in Newington Green with The Garden Classroom, one Friday every month. You’ll need suitable footwear but they provide the tools!
Made In Hackney
Meal Delivery Volunteer
Confident cyclist or cargo bike rider? Community cookery school Made In Hackney need volunteers on Tuesdays and Thursdays 4-7pm to deliver hundreds of free meals to residents.
Volunteer Centre Hackney
If you have just 1 or 2 hours to spare, make a difference visiting a Hackney resident who is isolated and in need of some company – for a chat, or a walk in the park. We’re particularly interested in hearing from people who speak community languages such as Polish, Punjabi, Bengali, or Portuguese.
Passionate about helping refugees? Support the distribution of food, toiletries, and other everyday essentials to people staying in Home Office accommodation locally. Time commitment is flexible but a minimum of 2 hours per week would be helpful.
If you’re feeling isolated or out on a limb..volunteering is the best way to plug yourself in and recharge. It helped me learn new skills, and sharpen existing ones. I’d highly recommend it
