Volunteer

Our volunteers are very special to us and vital to our success. We can guarantee that the right people will have a rewarding experience working in our dedicated and friendly community.

Meet our volunteers and hear about their experiences.

We have various  volunteer opportunities including befriending, being a social buddy, and supporting sessions at our training centres. Apply to become a volunteer at Share

We previously received a Best Practice in volunteering award from Lifetimes, an organisation that supports voluntary and community activity in Wandsworth. They were particulary impressed by the support, training, recognition and reward that we give to our volunteers and that we recruited people with additional support needs and those from marginalised backgrounds. 

In return for you giving up your time for us, you can expect:
  • A warm welcome into our organisation
  • A comprehensive induction
  • On-going support and training from staff
  • An opportunity to develop new skills and add to your CV
  • A reference for your time with us
  • Reimbursement of travel expenses within zone 1 - 6
  • Free lunch in our canteen or £5 towards lunch outside of Share (if volunteering for more than 4 hours a day)
  • Invitations to all our events, such as our garden parties, away days, Christmas parties and our student awards ceremony
  • The opportunity to have your say in our annual volunteer survey
  • A genuine opportunity to make a difference and become part of a community

Please take a look at our volunteer policy.
