Volunteer with us

Volunteers are our lifeblood – without them we simply wouldn’t exist. We’re always 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 enjoy giving their time and expertise to support others in the local community of Battersea and Wandsworth. You’re never too old or too young to volunteer and everyone has got something to offer. We provide training and support and you can make friends, gain skills and improve employability.

Would you like to be a mentor?

One inspiring person coming into a refugee child’s life can have an immeasurable impact on their education. Through Katherine Low Settlement’s Love to Learn project based in Battersea, we offer 1-1 mentoring to ensure that children and young people lacking confidence have someone they can turn to, to tutor, encourage, and enable them to reach their full potential.

We have a training day on 2nd February 2019. If you’re interested in becoming a volunteer mentor or would like more information, email [email protected]

Staff from Civicus cleared our garden – team building for them and a cleared garden for us!
