If you live or work in Wandsworth, find out
how to volunteer your time to help others during Volunteer Week
from June 1.
Volunteering Wandsworth is delivered by
Groundwork London on behalf of Wandsworth council to help
bring together volunteers and organisations with volunteer
vacancies, and to make it easier for people to make a real
difference in the community.
It will be holding twice monthly ‘pop up’
meetings at borough libraries to inspire and support volunteers.
Volunteering Wandsworth staff will be giving information and advice
to anyone who lives, works or studies in Wandsworth and is
interested in volunteering.
During June, meetings will be held at:
Meetings will continue throughout 2011. A full
list of sessions is available and you can sign up online at
Volunteering Wandsworth will also be offering
help to organisations that want to develop their volunteering
programme, either by increasing the amount of volunteers they use,
developing their management and training of existing volunteers or
organising volunteering days for employees.
Volunteering Wandsworth specialises in helping
employers and organisations design, implement and manage volunteer
activities for groups or individuals. Volunteering Wandsworth was
approached by restaurant chain Nandos, which is seeking to connect
with local groups who could benefit from the hard work and
community spirit of their staff.
During Volunteer Week employees from Nandos’
Putney-based Project Management Department are working with
residents of Carey Gardens Estate Sheltered Housing to transform a
shady and neglected garden.
