Featured Volunteering Opportunities
Community Table Delivery Volunteer
Help the Shoreditch Trust deliver 600 freshly prepared meals a week to people in Hackney who are currently unable to prepare food for themselves. This role is for anyone who has a driver’s license, can spare 2 hours a week and wants to give back to the community.
Make a life-changing difference helping to improve adult literacy. Develop new skills seeking out new opportunities for funding, writing funding bids, and putting together simple budgets. A great way to gain practical fundraising experience in a local charity.
Gain valuable experience supporting parents, carers, and children with special educational needs or disabilities. You might give advice over the phone, or accompany a parent or carer to a local authority meeting. All volunteers will receive IPSEA legal training and knowledge of health and social care.
Project Development Volunteer
Join an enthusiastic team working to engage local people and businesses to support their advocacy and social action campaigns for the African and Afro-Caribbean community. You will use your research, digital, and engagement skills to bring people together and make an impact.
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, Urdu, Bengali, Punjabi, or Italian.
Choice in Hackney
Help local disabled people to go for restorative walks in the community. During Covid-19, many disabled people have been isolating and lacking the confidence to go outside. Without breaking government guidance, you will help and encourage them to get out of the house and experience Hackney’s beauty.
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
