Volunteering at St. Pancras Community Association

General

Being a volunteer at Saint Pancras Community Association offers the chance to join a diverse community of people; an extended family with many different stories to tell, and lots going on. It offers the chance to make social contacts, do social good and develop your skills. If you are looking for work, it also helps you to build your CV. Once you have proved your ability, staff will usually be happy to provide you with a reference for any job applications you may be making. 

As a volunteer, you will become part of an established but small team and will usually be invited to regular volunteer gatherings to celebrate and share this. We offer volunteer expenses so you will not be out of pocket.You will receive an initial induction session, which will often provide an opportunity to get to know other volunteers or staff, to get a detailed impression of the role you will be taking on, and the issues surrounding it.

Due to the nature and environment of this type of work a DBS (disclosure barring service) check will be carried out on all volunteers/employees.

Volunteer Sandwich Club Assistant

On Mondays and Wednesday, St Pancras Community Association hosts a soup and sandwich club which provides food for local older people, and a social setting which encourages good health and happiness. We offer a warm welcome to people who would like to join us in delivering and being involved in these activities, and a supportive and enjoyable environment to be a part of.

We need committed volunteers to help support this service. Tasks include: serving food, making tea and coffee, washing up, kitchen duties, and of course providing a friendly and welcoming environment.

No professional experience is necessary, just a willingness to get involved and help. We can provide free food hygiene training for all volunteers keen to help, and a supportive and enjoyable environment to be a part of.

Volunteer Activities Assistant for Older People

We are looking for volunteers to help support our Older People's Project, particularly during weekday daytimes.

This would include helping on outings to some beautiful and exciting destinations around the south of England; supporting activities and workshops in the community centre; helping out on trips locally; and escorting some of our older members to appointments, offering both practical and moral support.

We are hoping to find volunteers who can share in a conversation, bring warmth and friendliness and offer practical help escorting older people to come on trips and get out and about using wheelchairs.

Volunteer Administrator

We can often use help with administrative duties that range from filing to reception work. So the volunteer is not just “waiting for work” these usually need to be combined with personal projects in which the volunteer can be more pro-active and have their own areas of responsibility. Examples might be filing, collecting materials for our web site, overseeing our Twitter account or carrying out some form of social research.   

Each case is individual and can be tailored to your needs as well as the community centres, so contact us to discuss possibilities.
