We are looking for volunteers to work regular shifts in our Community Café. We need someone who can volunteer to work from 8.30am to 11.30am OR 10.30am to 1.30pm. It’s help with setting up in the morning and clearing up in the afternoon that we really want. If you can prepare food and serve as well then that would be great. If you want it we can offer free Food Hygiene Training Levels 1 or 2, to committed volunteers. Being a member of Commonside’s volunteer team is a valued position in this organisation. We support anyone, who helps us, to move on into training and employment if this is what they want. Don’t forget – volunteering always looks good on a C.V.!
If you can help us out please contact either Janine in the Café, Andy Hodge on 020 8764 9582 x 210 or Naomi Martin on x 207.

We were delighted to host Merton’s Jobs Fair on Thursday October 2012. Over 500 people signed in to the Jobs Fair, and were able to find information on local employment and training, jobs and volunteering. Several of the stallholders ran out of application forms because there was so much interest, and our community café was exceptionally busy! Both of these are signs of a very successful day and we are proud what we achieved. We look forward to working in partnership with colleagues at LB Merton again very soon.
