Our volunteers make a difference in their community and help 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.
Anyone can apply to become a volunteer. We embrace inclusivity and diversity and value the skills, enthusiasm and commitment brought by staff and volunteers of different faiths and none.
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, our Volunteer Co-ordinator firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
We offer half day and whole day team away days volunteering at our allotment site. You will be helping with allotment maintenance, no gardening skills required.
