Literacy, hairdressing, fundraising, photography and PR are just a few of the services offered by the 999 Volunteers, as well as the serving of countless cups of tea and toast at our 2 day centres.
A school teacher volunteers on a weekly basis and helps local children who have had difficulties in the school system. Her one-to-one tutoring brings amazing results. She also helps adults who have problems with their reading and writing.
Our hairdresser, really transforms people’s lives. Some of her clients have physical problems, such as arthritis, which makes cutting or styling their hair difficult.
Our volunteers come from all walks of life and from all over the world. They include local mums, school children on work experience, gap year students, students who want to get involved in the local community and post graduates looking for hands on experience. We are tremendously grateful to Goldsmiths College for their close co-operation in helping provide student volunteers.
