We always need volunteers to help with the projects we run.
If you can spare some time please phone us on 020 8764 9582 or fill in the form below. Alternatively please contact Shari Holder on shari@commonside.net.


Donate your time and energy through volunteering. Our current main needs for volunteers are:

  1. Lunch Club volunteers who can help prepare, serve and clear meals for up to 30 older people on weekdays from 9.30am to 2pm.  You can do one day or five days, regular or one-off, starting 9.30am or 11am – we are very flexible and always grateful.
  2. Helpers at our children’s and young people’s cooking and gardening sessions.
  3. Gardeners, especially those with a little experience who can help nurture the gardens in between the group sessions.

We regularly post and update all our volunteering opportunities on the Merton Voluntary Services Council’s website – here https://www.mvsc.co.uk/volunteering (this is linked to the national Do-it website, here – https://do-it.org/opportunities/search ) and on https://volunteerteam.london.gov.uk/.

There may be other ways you can help – we are always eager for suggestions!  Last year Root7, www.root7.com/ donated a hog roast for our fun day from partners, Big Roast, http://bigroast.com/ !  And United Living,  http://unitedliving.co.uk/   have very helpfully taken away some yard rubbish for free in one of their skip drives!

We are also pleased to accept work experience placements, and working towards our Fair Train accreditation:  http://www.fairtrain.org/.  Contact naomi@commonside.net for more information.

You can also stay up to date with the various projects at Commonside on Facebook and Twitter.
