About our Volunteers

By the Community, For the Community

 

 

Summerhill Community Centre now has a pool of over 80 volunteers who have collectively given over 10000 volunteer hours each year and are the essential ingredient of our success.

We rely on the contribution of all kinds of people to create ideas, to plan and help deliver activities and projects.

From paid staff and Commissions,  Members, Trustees and Volunteers, in addition to the wider community, everyone is needed.

It is this rich range of experiences at a very grassroots local level, that enables us to promote, develop and support our wider communities.

We do our best to ensure that all volunteers enjoy positive experiences at Summerhill.  Volunteers are introduced to a wide training programme; supported to develop their own skills;  use their own experiences, skills and initiative to help others and we have many opportunities to explore.

All our present staff have also experienced volunteering at Summerhill and understand the importance of peer mentoring and community support. Some volunteers have developed their leadership skills to become the facilitators and group leaders.

 

We have an excellent track record of volunteers moving onto further or higher education, training placements and employment.

We currently have roles for volunteers in the following areas:

  • Events support

  • Advice and Information

  • Office and Admin support

  • Home activities

  • Health and Wellbeing activities

  • Youth Work

  • Youth , Adult Sports and Gym Activities

  • Environmental Projects

  • Community Food Pantry, cooking and Fareshare Projects
