Caxton House Community Centre is proud of the programs we offer and is always on the look out for enthusiastic members of the community that want to get involved and give back. As a community hub, there are a number of different groups and projects that need a helping hand; we work with individuals, the local authority, voluntary organisations and other community projects that may have other volunteering opportunities available.
We are currently seeking volunteers for a variety of areas within the centre, such as:
"My name is Paul Pender, I’m 50 years old, and I want to tell you about the six weeks I did work experience at Caxton House. My placement was arranged by Jessie at Hillside Clubhouse, which is an organisation that helps people with mental health issues with the aim of getting them back to work.
On my first day both Paul and Sue made me feel very welcome as I was very nervous having not been in a work environment for a while.
The varied work, help and support I received from Paul and Sue really helped build up my confidence to such an extent that I now mentor people with learning difficulties in English at Hillside Club House. I also hope to set up my own cycle repair business in the near future. A big chunk of this new found self-belief is down to Caxton House.
I still help out at Caxton House (most recently as the projectionist for a film show to the local over 50s) when I’m needed and available, and hopefully will continue to do so for the foreseeable future. Caxton House is what every community needs, with a wide choice of activities for everyone, from under 5’s to over 90's.
It’s great to volunteer for an organisation that put people first! Go on, get out there, volunteer and give something back to your local community!’"
