Volunteering at the TCR Hub
Do you want to get involved, volunteer and make a difference to the lives of local people? As a community organisation we are always seeking ways to engage with the community and involve YOU in the running of the charity and the building.
We have lots of opportunities, across many areas of the organisation for volunteering opportunities.
Our volunteers tell us they love what they do at the Hub.
As a retired person, volunteering at The Hub has given me new interests, new skills, new friends and a sense of purpose and focus. I also feel that I am now giving something meaningful back to my local community.
Fareshare & Food Waste
If you feel passionately about tackling hunger and preventing food from going to waste, we would love to hear from you.
Small gestures can make the biggest difference. Collecting food feels small, until you see the benefit it brings to the local community.
If you would like to help us on reception or office based volunteering, we can provide a great way of gaining experience in a fast paced community venue, dealing with enquiries and organisational tasks.
Please get in touch if this interests you.
Are you a music teacher who can help mentor and teach? Want to help run and organise a gig?
We are always in need of teachers and mentors for musicians of all ages and abilities.
We also look for volunteers who can help set up sound and light equipment, assist with recordings and the hiring out of equipment. There are also opportunities for volunteers to assist with the promotion of the Music Studio and Events and Gigs.
We deliver High Ropes sessions, Canoeing and Kayaking and BMX to all ages and abilities. We have a small team of volunteers who can assist with the setting up of sessions and the liaison between the customer and our staff. We are also building up a team of volunteer coaches with the correct professional qualifications and are always looking for more people to join.
We run three vehicles as part of our community transport offer.
Customers can hire out the vehicles with or without a driver and we have a small team of volunteer drivers who help run the business unit.
We transport groups such as the Alzheimer’s Society, Youth groups and School groups. Drivers need to have D1 on their licence.
Can you help get people out of their homes and socialising?
The Kitchen Cafe
From baking a cake to helping out at events…we would love you to get in touch if you feel you can help out.
Much of our income is generated through the room hire and we are always looking for volunteers who can help to promote this service at reception or by attending community events to showcase the Hub.
Our accommodation is used throughout the year by a variety of groups and we have a team of volunteers who assist with housekeeping and maintenance of the rooms.
In addition to the opportunities above we also have extensive grounds that are maintained by dedicated volunteer gardeners.
We also have a reception desk open 6 days a week and appreciate support from volunteers who like to speak to customers and share what the Hub is all about.
