Activity Centres - Service Teams

Our volunteers come from all backgrounds – from students to Scout Leaders, retired professionals to those just wanting to get involved in something different and rewarding for a couple of hours a week and most important its #GoodForYou

You may just want to volunteer to help on a short term basis or be interested in a more regular volunteer position with us – either way your contribution will be invaluable in helping us run and develop our Activity Centres. With Phasels and Tolmers our larger centres, coupled with Harmergreen and Well End on the smaller side, it doesn't matter if you're with us for just a few hours or become a regular volunteer, you'll be given full support and training to fulfil your role and become part of #TeamHertfordshire

You may have professional trade skills that can help maintain our facilities, such as carpentry or mechanics, or just be interested in getting involved in the day-to-day support of our centres. Whatever your current skills and aims we're sure to have the right role for you. Midweek, weekends, evenings, we operate 7 days a week so can be flexible around your availability.

Also this summer starting in July until September, we aim to have a limited number of residential volunteer opportunities available which will look great on your CV and help you to learn new #SkillsForLife
