If you can’t see a role that fits your skills – get in touch and tell us what you CAN do! No doubt we can find a role or you.
Come and join us, we think you’ll fit right in!
Current volunteer vacancies
Become a MoM (mum on maternity leave)
Our successful Mums on Maternity leave volunteering stream sees mums who are at home with their own young babies come to our project to befriend our mums and then accompany them to existing free groups and provision within Newham – where they would be going anyway.
Minimal commitment, flexible volunteering, and a sense of purpose and community while at home.
See details here.
Monday playgroup leader
This is a vital role – suited to someone who can juggle multiple tasks with a smile and a sense of calm.
The only way mums will keep coming is if their babies are happy and nurtured. So you will work with the team to make sure that the room is set up with exciting and enticing play options for our under fives.
You will ensure that everyone who wants one has a cup of tea, that buggies are stored safely, that snacks are served on time, that the lunch is in hand, and that the premises is left as we found it – spick and span.
You will do this so that the play workers and professionals can concentrate on what they are doing without having to worry about timings and tea-bags.
Adhoc volunteer driver
We are often offered free items such as baby clothes, equipment and buggies by people who would struggle to deliver them to our donation points.
We are currently missing many great items because we do not have the capacity to collect these items from kind people around Newham.
If you work from home, have time during the week, and have a car this might be the role for you. Low commitment, do it when you can, but make a massive difference as you do.
Pop Up Clothes Club Team
This opportunity would suit an existing club or group of people who wished to get involved as an organised group – a university student club, a book club, a WI, a church group?
We currently run a clothes club for mums and minis on the first Saturday of every month.
During the month we collect and sort as-new clothes, donated buggies, baby baths, payments and small equipment alongside toiletries, sanitary items, and maternity wear and outerwear for mothers.
We then create a “shop” where mums use tokens to “buy” items for themselves and their babies – giving them back choice and dignity.
This has been taking up alot of the teams time and we would love to hand it over to a crack team of volunteers to take off our plate.
