Volunteers are essential for our work at Markfield. If you are interested in supporting our work, developing new skills and being part of a dedicated and enthusiastic team, then volunteering is for you!

We have lots of volunteer roles including

  • Weekly volunteering on our clubs or drop in sessions

  • Ad-hoc volunteering such as helping at a family event

  • Practical volunteering such as helping us re-paint or gardening

  • Holiday volunteering on our playschemes

  • Office volunteering, helping with administration tasks

All our volunteers receive training and if working directly with service users will undergo a Disclosing and Barring Service (DBS) check.

Volunteers are given supervision and if you volunteer for 50 or more hours we will give you a certificate of thanks and offer a professional reference if needed in the future.
