We do have a few volunteering opportunties that you can do from your own home. Most of these involve supporting national organisations on a lone worker basis and are not for everyone however if getting out and about is a barrier for you please let us know and we will be happy to advise on the rrange of options available to you. You may like to consider our Loving Hands – Knitting Project which has proved very popular.
The Volunteer Centre are working with Loving Hands (based in Scotland) who distribute items to charities in need. The nice thing about this project is you can knit or crochet anything you enjoy making, as we will always find someone in need of it. So from Prem baby clothes, to hats for sailors, to toys for children in accidents and orphanages, to scarves and blankets for elderly people – the choice is yours!
If you need some inspiration of what to knit you can download some patterns from our downloads page or email us or pop in if you would like something else.
Once you have knitted your items you can drop them into your nearest volunteer centre and we will post them off for you.
