MetTemps offers both paid work within the University and voluntary roles within local charities and community organisations.
Fundraising Volunteer – Young Voices (Teenage Cancer Trust)
Young Voices showcase some of the most talented young choirs in the country, and we’re thrilled to have the opportunity to fundraise at this fantastic series of events – the largest school choir concerts in the world! Our volunteers are invited to enjoy the show and then collect donations as guests exit the venue.
Volunteer Admin Receptionist (Change, Grow, Live)
A charity that supports people to change their lives for the better – Change, Grow, Live is looking for a volunteer receptionist to create a welcoming and friendly environment, to assist with the day to day office duties such as answering the phone, opening and distributing mail, filing, photocopying, record keeping etc. As well as assist with communications with service users and enquiries from the general public (in person, via telephone, mail or email).
Dignity Champion Volunteer (Healthwatch Central West)
Volunteers are crucial to what we do and without their support we would not be able to run our programmes. As an independent charity and membership organisation we are working to ensure peoples’ voice counts when it comes to shaping and improving local health and care services and volunteers play a massive role in helping local people, particularly those seldom heard. Our Dignity Champions visit publicly funded health and social care services, such as care homes, hospitals, and mental health units, to understand the experience of people using the service and ensure that they are treated with dignity and respect.
Befriender Volunteer (Family Lives NORTH LONDON)
We are looking for people to become befrienders once a week for an hour to listen to and empower people who look after their grandchildren on a permanent basis. They are known as Kinship Carers or Special Guardians. They take on the role because the alternative is that the children would be otherwise taken into care or adopted and this way they can stay in the family and still have contact sometimes with their birth parents.
Support Children And Adults With A Learning Disability (Kith and Kids)
Our ultimate aim at a Kith & Kids’ club is that everybody has lots of fun in an environment in which our members feel safe and relaxed and are able to fully express themselves. We aim that our members receive 2:1 volunteer support. This helps ensure that the sessions have lots of energy and enthusiasm. It also gives new volunteers a chance to learn further support tips from experienced volunteers.
