Volunteer Placements and Long-Term Volunteering

Volunteer Yourself

This only requires you to do your best, to concentrate on the job in hand, and to make a difference to build a strong, happy and harmonious community. We’re trying this out at the Centre through engaging visiting residential groups in eco-campaigns like recycling and supporting their own residential experience.

You can easily Volunteer Yourself through:

  • Litter picks
  • #2minutebeachclean
  • Recycling
  • Citizen Science Monitoring Projects
  • Making time for a cuppa with others
  • Sharing your knowledge
