Volunteering empowers local people to make a difference in their community and helps us to increase the services the Springfield Project can offer to children and families. We want to offer volunteers opportunities that are stimulating, relevant and rewarding and of mutual benefit to the Springfield Project.
Who can volunteer?
Anyone can apply to become a volunteer. We actively recruit Christian volunteers to maintain our rooting in our Christian beliefs and motivation. We also embrace inclusivity and diversity and value the skills, enthusiasm and commitment brought to the Springfield Project by staff and volunteers of other faiths and none. We particularly try to help those who live within our area and have children and are trying to move towards employment.
What can I do as a volunteer?
Our volunteering opportunities are varied. Please see our current opportunities to find out what you can do as a volunteer and read our Volunteer Policy. We occasionally are able to accommodate people with specific skills for roles not advertised.
What do I do if I'm interested?
If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, email Rosalyn, stating which opportunity interests you and why you would be a good person for this role. You will also need to supply your postcode. We have a straightforward application process and can provide support with this if needed.
Everyone has skills and talents that can make a difference. For all volunteering, references and a Disclosure and Barring Service check are required. A trial period of volunteering can then ensure both the volunteer and the Project are happy with the chosen role.
The Springfield Project is unable to offer student placements, except by direct arrangement with the colleges. If you would like a placement please ask your tutor to contact the relevant member of our staff.
