For you

    Volunteering: strengthening communities
    Have a skill or passion to share? If so we want to hear from you. Your time can make an invaluable contribution to someone else's life or wider community whether you have an hour, a day, or a week to give.

    Our Volunteering & Partnerships team works with One Housing residents and local organisations to create volunteering opportunities that really benefit the community. 

    We call this the Gift Partnership. It’s all about helping residents to help others, while developing their own skills and knowledge.

    So if you are looking to improve your CV, contribute to your community or boost your confidence, we have opportunities to suit your interests, skills and time.

    Our services

    Our dedicated team offers tailored support and advice to all One Housing residents and customers who are over 18.  We can provide help with:

    • finding the right placement
    • completing application forms
    • writing a CV
    • preparation for placements, including access training opportunities
    • on-going support while you volunteer.

    Get in touch today to find out more about what we can do for you, and with you.

    Are you from an organisation that offers volunteer placements? We’d also love to hear from you. Get in touch on 020 7428 4120 to discuss the benefits of becoming a partner.
