We couldn’t do without our brilliant volunteers. They contribute so much to the hustle and bustle of Centre 81 and help members to get the most from their time with us.  Unfortunately because of the current Covid-19 restrictions, we are having to work within, we cannot at this time welcome our volunteers into our Centre.

We are missing the fun and joy our volunteers bring to the family of Centre 81 and are looking forward to the day when we can again welcome them all back.  Until then if you are interested in becoming a volunteer check out and like our Facebook page.  Here you can see what we are doing to make sure our members enjoy themselves.  It is also the place where you will find out when and how we can invite our volunteers back, so you will be the first to know.

Volunteering at Centre 81

It’s important that volunteers feel comfortable in their surroundings, in their role and in their work. If you would like to join us, and when we are able, you will be invited to drop in for a chat and a look around the Centre before making a decision.

Volunteer with a member

Volunteers can fill a variety of roles – anything from working one-to-one with members to food preparation and washing-up, gardening or office work. You may be able to share special one-off skills, such as helping members with sailing, swimming, baking, singing, drama or any one of dozens of other activities. Some of our drivers are volunteers and undertake the same training as our employed drivers.

We do our best to ensure that all Centre 81 volunteers get a real sense of satisfaction and fulfilment from what they do. After all, you may be volunteering for a whole range of reasons:

  • to give something back to the community
  • to put something positive on your CV
  • to use your spare time constructively
  • to put your skills to good use – or develop new ones
  • to keep busy now you have retired
  • to make a difference

Whatever the reasons, we’d like to meet you. All volunteers are subject to a positive Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check and training is provided as required for your volunteering role.

Centre 81 welcomes and respects diversity, and our equal opportunities approach extends to members, volunteers and staff.
