Waddington Street Centre began in 1981 as a direct initiative of volunteers. 35 years on, volunteers remain an integral part of the organisation. We currently have opportunities in support work, tutoring, administration and governance.
Volunteering can be a great way of making new friends, developing new skills and giving something back to your local community. Your time commitment is up to you but we do ask that people are able to offer some consistency due to the vulnerable nature of the people we support.
Anyone interested in volunteering is interviewed informally by the WSC's Resource Organiser/Deputy Manager, an application completed, 2 referees consulted and an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check undertaken. Volunteers of all ages over 18 are welcome to apply. WSC is committed to equality of opportunity for everyone regardless of his or her race, nationality, religion or belief, gender, sexuality, disability, age, or marital status.
Volunteers will be reimbursed with travelling expenses. A full induction will be provided and volunteers are always welcome to join in with training activities.
