We couldn’t do without our brilliant volunteers. They keep the hustle and bustle of Centre 81 going and allow members to get the very most from their time with us.

Could you be a volunteer?

It’s important that volunteers feel comfortable in their surroundings, in their role and in their work. Anyone who is interested in joining us as a volunteer will be invited to drop in for a chat and a look around the centre before making a decision.

VolunteersVolunteers can fill a variety of roles – anything from working one-to-one with members to washing-up, gardening or driving. Or 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.

We do our best to ensure that that all volunteers get satisfaction and fulfillment from what they do – something we will regularly check on.

After all, you may be volunteering for a whole range of reasons:

  • to give something back to the community
  • to put something worthwhile 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

What next for our volunteers?

Whatever the reasons, we’d like to meet you – and to offer you something that will benefit you as well as Centre 81.

All volunteers are subject to a positive a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check and training is provided, as required.

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