Volunteering

Do you have just a few hours to share? Or could you make a major contribution to a local community group? If so, you’ll find a wealth of opportunities with Bede. Volunteering is a great way to add a new dimension to your life while helping other people. To discover more about all we have to offer, simply contact the projects below.

Bede Learning Disabilities

Could you help someone to make the most of their abilities, develop new friendships and join in neighbourhood activities? We are looking for volunteers to help with our lively allotment, wildlife and art groups. Expand your horizons while helping them to do the same. Mondays – Fridays between 9.30 and 3.30pm.

You can choose your day(s) and whether you do a morning or afternoon session. We can offer support and the opportunity to attend training courses. Are you able to volunteer for a full day? If so we will reimburse your fares and offer you a delicious free lunch.

Bede Youth

Share your skills with young people and feel the satisfaction of seeing them grow and learn. We occasionally have opportunities for people with interests such as IT, media, sports, music and more. Perhaps you have hidden talents? Why not take this chance to use them to the full. Please contact us to find out if we have availability. Most evenings 6pm-9pm.

Bede: Ending Domestic Abuse

We help those who experience domestic violence to find safety and rebuild their lives. Our Bede Starfish project is especially important for the large number of our clients who have children. Young people deserve to grow up in secure environments – the focus of all we do. If you work or are training to work in the area of domestic abuse we would love to hear from you.

Bede in the Community

Bede hosts regular and one-off events throughout the year, from fairs to fun runs. We also need assistance for projects such as coordinating our fascinating photography archive and supporting runners in the Virgin London Marathon. In fact there’s always something, somewhere that could benefit from your help. Just give us a call to find out what’s happening.
