Volunteering pop up event tomorrow 12 – 2pm The Junction area

This is the first of a series of 3 Volunteer Pop Ups and we have 5 charitable organisations looking for Volunteers so if you are thinking of volunteering this may be the event for you.

ReachOut is a national mentoring and education charity, rooted in local communities. Working in under-resourced areas, we support young people to grow in character and confidence, sparking change in themselves and society.

  • Volunteer Mentor – 1-2 hours per week volunteering as a mentor to a young person.

KEEN London is a small but growing charity. Our vision is that every child has the chance to enjoy games and leisure activities and none are left behind due to disability. We provide free games and activity sessions with tailored support for children with additional needs and disabilities. We support over 100 children, known as our ‘athletes’, with a wide range of additional needs, including autism, cerebral palsy, learning disabilities, and global development delay. At KEEN London, we strive to use fun and games to improve young people’s wellbeing, personal, social and emotional development as well as broadening experiences to increase skills and confidence.

  • Volunteer Coach – During a typical KEEN London session, you’ll provide one-to-one support to a child, helping them to access all the activities on offer, achieve their personal development goals, and of course have tons of fun

The Access Project supports students from disadvantaged backgrounds to access top universities, through a unique combination of tuition and in-school mentoring. We work with them to make good applications, get the grades and transition to university.

  • Volunteer Tutor

The Kids Network is a community of children and volunteer mentors connecting through fun, friendship and hardship for positive social change.

  • Volunteer Mentor

Mencap - 1.5 million people in the UK have a learning disability. Our vision is for the UK to be the best place in the world for people with a learning disability to live happy and healthy lives. There is still so much to do so that people with a learning disability have the same rights as everyone else and are treated equally in society.

Everything we do is about valuing and supporting people with a learning disability, and their families and carers. Mencap works with people with a learning disability to change laws, challenge prejudice and support them to live their lives as they choose.

  • Community Support Volunteer – this role is to support and enable people with learning disabilities to take part in local community volunteering activities, gain confidence, and get out and about in their local area.
  • Community Campaigns and Activism Organiser Volunteer – within your local area, you will be responsible for engaging with people with a learning disability and their families, and with local organisations and charities to identify what needs to change and to work toward this.
