There are lots of volunteering opportunities with Padley.
Newsletter and Marketing
A volunteer who is good at design, layout and writing is needed to put together our Newsletter on a bi-monthly basis. We also need help to design and produce leaflets and other marketing materials.
We have an ambitious events programme and need individuals or teams to help out both on the day and in organising the events. See our Fundraising page

We need volunteer drivers to drive our van in the local area to collect textiles, bric a brac and food. You must be over 25, have a clean driving licence and be in good health. Weekdays only.
We need classroom assistants to aid our Arts & Crafts, Pottery, Woodwork and Cookery Tutors in ensuring that all of our clients with learning difficulties or mental health problems achieve their full potential. Opportunities are available most weekdays.
We also need volunteers to help prepare and serve food in our Bistro - Monday to Friday.
We are also seeking volunteer guest tutors to deliver ad-hoc short courses such as flower arranging, jewellery making and bicycle maintenance, etc.
Our Day Centre couldn't operate without volunteers. We need people with a caring and non-judgmental approach who are able to give us a few hours each week to help out with jobs such as the preparation and serving of food, washing up, day to day conversation with clients, helping on the door and making sure that our homeless clients can access our basic needs services etc. We also need volunteers to run activities, so if you have a talent you can share, please contact us.
These volunteering opportunities are available 7 days a week.
Shop / Recycling
We always need volunteers in our Charity Shop for merchandising and sales activities. and to help out in our warehouse sorting all the wonderful donations we get.
Opportunities available Monday to Saturday.
We have put in a proposal to run the cafe at Hansnon’s Auction house in Etwal and we are looking for some fabulous volunteers to help us run it. The cafe is open for a block of 8 days a month and we are looking for people to do a minimum of one of those days.
We hope to open up more cafe's in the near future so keep a look out here for new opportunities.
