Volunteering

Two volunteers gardening in Bernie Spain Gardens

We have an incredible team of volunteers at Coin Street. They work hard to help us support the community, deliver events and maintain our thriving neighbourhood.  

From working with young people to helping to support older people, we often have a range of opportunities available including one-off activities, regular sessions and project based programmes.  

Current opportunities

At the moment, we have limited volunteering opportunities due to Covid-19 restrictions but we are still recruiting for volunteers to support our online tutoring sessions on Monday evenings and volunteers who can support delivery of wellbeing packages to local residents.  

Accessibility

Across all sessions we want to work to make our programme as inclusive and accessible as possible. If you have a skill such as sign language, audio description or an interest in enhancing accessibility, then please get in touch.

How to get involved

If you would like to get involved in any of the opportunities mentioned above or have your own idea for how you could participate in our local community then please get in touch with Laura Reynolds 020 7021 1622  or l.reynolds@coinstreet.org 

Volunteers working with children, young people and vulnerable adults on a regular basis will need to provide two references, have a meeting with a member of staff, be willing to complete a DBS check and safeguarding training. 

I first got involved with Coin Street around nine months ago when I started volunteering at the family fitness and fun sessions on Sundays. As an exchange student I had to leave my family and friends in Japan and move to London by myself. Living in London on your own can be quite difficult. Coin Street helped make this easier. Although they couldn’t replace my family in Japan, the staff, other volunteers and community became a second family to me.”
