As a charity, Kingston Eco-op depends on volunteers to improve the quality and diversity of our service for our clients. Our volunteers are not used as replacements for staff but to support them in the work they do.

Our volunteers offer a different perspective and life experience to enhance our ability to respond to the needs of our clients. We can offer flexible hours to suit your weekly timetable and we pledge to ensure that you are given all the support, supervision and guidance you need to feel comfortable and fulfilled in your time with us.

What skills do I need?

You will need empathy and an open-minded approach to solving problems. You will be asked to foster a keen community spirit in your work and treat all who attend Eco-op with respect and dignity.

How much time do I need to give as a volunteer?

There are no limits on how many hours you can commit to Eco-op. Anywhere from an hour or two to several days is practical for us although there may be limits on the days you can attend as we’re careful to monitor the number of people on site at any one time for health and safety reasons.
