Volunteer with us...

Here at Brunswick Hub, we have a small team of volunteers work in a variety of different roles, helping us to deliver a wide range of activities and services. Each role contributes to making our Community Centre thrive.

We're not always looking for volunteers to fill a specific role, but if you've got some time to give and would like to see if we can find a place for you,  we'd be happy to hear from you!

What will volunteering do for me?

Confidence in your abilities can easily be lost if you have been out of the work place for a while.
Volunteering allows you the opportunity to make an important contribution on less formal and more flexible basis, in a role where you are supported and valued.

Quote from Helen Keller saying “Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.”

5 Reasons to volunteer

Its fulfilling...

Volunteering provides the opportunity to give back and for some, this may be to causes or organisations that they have had to turn to in the past. Many people volunteer because it gives them a sense of fulfilment and purpose and often, if you have had support during hard times, it can be especially rewarding to give a helping hand to others in that same way once you find yourself in a position to do so. Giving back to your community allows you to connect with those around you who are in need and make a difference for a cause that you care about.

You can gain work skills (and avoid gaps on your CV)

If you're not currently in employment, it doesn't mean that your CV has to suffer. Volunteering shows potential employers that you are willing to make a commitment and that you are adding to your skill set even while out of work and can help you gain self-confidence and experience that may increase your employability.

You can also ask for a reference from the organisation that you are volunteering for when making job applications.

You can make new friends

There is often a social aspect to volunteering, it bring people together! Many volunteer roles require working in a team
and you can build great relationships with those you volunteer with.

You can make positive changes

Many volunteers take roles that allow them to have a positive impact on the community. By helping to provide services that are needed, fundraising for a worthwhile local cause or improving the environment in the local area, volunteers can really add to or strengthen their community.

It keeps you occupied

Many volunteers choose to take on roles because volunteering can give them something to do away from the house. Some volunteers that are retired or temporarily out of work feel it helps keep a sense of routine having somewhere that you need to be once or twice a week. It can also be a way to stay feeling useful and keep independence.

By volunteering, you can use your skills to help others within your community and potentially find the job you desire.

Quote from John F Kennedy saying “Every person can make a difference, and every person should try.”
