For the following roles:
Our Buddies at Orchard House in South Croydon help people who want to try a new activity but lack motivation and confidence. Buddies who are members of our Active Minds Service have an interest in working one to one with clients to help them achieve their goals. A typical session with a buddy might be going swimming, walking, cycling, to the gym etc. We try to match people up so they are both interested in the same things. We’re also open to suggestions for new activities. We are looking for people to volunteer two to three hours a week.

There are a range of duties including steaming, sorting clothes, working the till, shop display, organising collections and deliveries. A good shop volunteer is someone with creative flair, committed and reliable, with customer-facing skills. Being able to use your initiative and being flexible are all ideal traits.

The Hub, our new service which operates on Saturdays at Fairfield House in East Croydon needs volunteers to support clients to do community activities, and to socialise. Volunteers chat to people, help them with form filling, and perhaps run a group or activity – let us know what skills you have and we’ll see if it might be possible for you to run your own group.
