Volunteers are our life blood – without them we simply wouldn’t exist. We’re looking for more volunteers to help out, give something back to the community, learn new skills, have fun and help us celebrate. You can volunteer for 90 minutes, 90 hours or 90 days.
Volunteers tell us that they enjoy giving their time and expertise to support others in the local community of Battersea and Wandsworth. They are involved with all aspects of KLS’ work such as the Older People’s Lunch Club, the Crèche, Love to Learn education project or at the Reception, meeting and greeting guests and service users.
In January 2014, as part of our 90th birthday celebrations, 139 Volunteer Awards were presented by Cllr Angela Graham, The Mayor of Wandsworth and Margaret Robson, Chair and Trustee, of the Katherine Low Settlement.
The Volunteer Awards Ceremony was a memorable evening for all involved. Retired volunteer, Daisy Campbell, felt extremely honoured to be recognised for the time she has given as Chair of the Older people’s Contact Club. She regarded the evening “as a night to remember”. Tony Morgan, an older people’s lunch club volunteer could not contain his happiness with the emotion shown towards the Mayor. Kat Gomez echoed many volunteers’ thoughts when she said: “It’s lovely to be recognised for doing what I enjoy”.
We’ve got the following volunteering opportunities available:
- Work with Young People

- Learning Mentors
- Music and Singing

“We were delighted to be supporting a local charity with such worthwhile causes, especially when there is clearly a benefit to the local community. All our staff and helpers had a wonderful and worthwhile day out of the office and really benefited in being able to be involved in such a great project.” Mark Howell, Director of Aspire (Estate Agents)
