Volunteer with us at the Kilmarnock Road Centre

Volunteer

Volunteering is an excellent way for people to get involved in their local community. It provides people with an opportunity to make new friends, whilst learning new skills to help them get into further training, education or employment.

Our volunteers are valued and supported and vital in helping us keep our service up and running and meeting the needs of the clients who we support.

As a volunteer you will receive:

Below are the roles which we currently have available.

Volunteer Kitchen Assistant

We are looking for volunteers to help maintain the smooth running of the Kilmarnock Road Resource Centre Community Cafe.  The Cafe is currently open Monday to Thursday from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm.

We are looking for volunteers to help prepare meals, keeping the front of house tidy, clearing away dirty crockery and washing up.

If you are reliable, honest, friendly and well organised then we'd love to hear from you!

Previous experience not necessary as full training will be given and there would also be an opportunity to gain a Basic Food Hygiene qualification.

Time commitment: minimum of 2 hours per week. 

Volunteer Youth Club Worker

We are looking for volunteers to help run our Youth Club sessions.  We have a Junior Youth Club for 5 to 11-year-olds which run three nights each week and a Senior Youth Club for 12 to 19-year-olds which run two nights per week.

We are looking for volunteers who enjoy working with young people, are passionate about making a difference.

Time commitment: minimum of 2 hours a week.

Volunteer Tech Buddy

As a Volunteer Tech Buddy, you will aim to inspire and support residents within the community to become confident using the internet in ways that will improve their quality of life and to stay safe online.

You will need to be patient, reliable (good timekeepers), have good spoken English, be friendly, a good listener and non-judgmental. Tech Buddy volunteers will also need to be regular users of technology (e.g. computers/tablets/smartphones) with a genuine desire to share their skills and help other people use technology.

Time commitment: minimum of 2 hours per week

Volunteer Representative

If you live in the Manor House Ward of Hartlepool and are interested in becoming actively involved in the organisation then becoming a Volunteer Representative is one way you can achieve that! These local representatives will be invited to attend Board meetings on a bi-monthly basis, and it is hoped will provide vital feedback from residents in the area. This feedback will then be used to further enhance the services and activities that are available through the Centre.

Representatives of the community may also be occasionally asked to promote any upcoming events in the Centre to encourage the community to come along and get involved with whatever activities are taking place.

Time commitment: minimum of 2 hours monthly. 

For an informal chat about any of the volunteer roles or if you are interested in any applying please call Dawn Vincent on (01429) 868008 or email manager@kilmarnockroadcentre.co.uk
