Volunteer with Haven Community
Volunteering with Haven Community is about making a positive difference to vulnerable adults in your community, assisting them, alongside our friendly staff, to have a fulfilling day.
Have you got any skills that you can bring to us such as, playing an instrument, baking cakes, crafts, gardening, computer skills, or something else? Or would you like to just keep someone company over a cup of tea or coffee and bring some extra cheer to their day?
It doesn’t take a lot of time, we are very flexible and grateful for all the time our volunteers are able to commit. Some volunteers volunteer for a fixed term e.g. 2 weeks, this is particularly popular with students wanting to gain experience for College or University during their time off. Other volunteers volunteer once or twice a week on a weekly basis and others come in every other week. We have lots of long term and short-term volunteering opportunities.
Why volunteer with us?
Volunteering with us looks great on your CV. Employers, colleges, and universities are always impressed to see how you are actively involved in your community.
For those that commit to volunteer for us for two weeks or more, or regularly each week, we will be more than happy to write you an honest reference if you should need one.
Whilst volunteering with us we hope that you can gain new skills, develop existing skills, and increase your confidence. You will get to see how we work as a charity, see the partnerships we have with other organisations in care, and be part of new and exciting experiences as we continue to develop and meet the changing needs of our members.
Whether this is something you may have done before or something completely new to you, if you think you may be interested in volunteering with us, please get in touch!
