We value your skills

We have lots of opportunities, across many areas of the organisation for volunteering opportunities.

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.

Helping reduce food waste

If you feel passionately about tackling hunger and preventing food from going to waste, we would love to hear from you.

Providing a helping hand

At The TCR Hub, we are able to help with supporting individuals and families who need a helping hand with accessing food.  The food pantry is open to anyone struggling with providing food for their home.

Our volunteers help manage this.

Small gestures can make the biggest difference. Collecting food feels small, until you see the benefit it brings to the local community.

Community transport

We run mini-buses 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?

Outdoor Education

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.


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.


Music & Events

If you would like to get involved with the work of our music studio and events team please contact us. 

Throughout the year there are many events held at the TCR Hub which involve volunteers willing to support them.
