Volunteering at The Hut can be rewarding and satisfying. As a Hut volunteer we will match you with a job that is both challenging and appreciated and will provide you with an opportunity to help others in the community. It is important to us that our volunteers gain a sense of personal achievement in knowing they have made a difference to the Community in which they live.
People volunteer for many reasons. Some of our volunteers say they like using their skills and experience to give back to the community or to help people in need. Others enjoy learning new skills, meeting new people in their community, and building friendships. Some volunteers want to increase their employability or get work experience.
Whatever the motivation, without volunteers The Hut could not run its administration, provide social activities, give much needed assistance to members of the community through Caring in our Community, drive the community buses, teach computing, run our organic food co-op, Community Shed, or health and fitness classes.
Our Volunteers come from all walks of life with a diverse range of knowledge and experiences, some volunteer in ongoing roles whilst others assist with short term projects. Whatever their circumstances they are The Hut’s life blood and the bedrock of our success.
