About the UVC
Uckfield Volunteer Centre was founded over 30 years ago by the community for the community.
Our award winning centre provides an invaluable community hub serving Uckfield and the surrounding area.
Our primary role is to match people wanting to volunteer with charities or community groups needing help. You can search for local opportunities on Do-it.org, or if you prefer to have a chat with someone face-to-face, you can come into the centre at 79 High Street (just up from the cinema).
As well as helping people with volunteering, we also provide local information such as bus timetables, a photocopying & laminating service, replacement hearing aid batteries and iPad and iPhone training (see our website for more details). In addition, we support community groups and local charities, who are our members, by providing networking events and training.
The center is run entirely by a dedicated team of volunteers. We are grateful for support from Uckfield Town Council.
About this opportunity
Currently at the Uckfield Volunteer Centre we are looking for additional 4 friendly faces in our office. As things stand, we’re open 3 mornings and one afternoon, but are looking to get back to opening 4 and a half days a week.
It doesn’t matter how old you are, we’ve have complete range of ages in our office going from teenagers right up to an nonagenarian. You don’t need to have specialized skills though they’re always welcome. Our office procedures will be taught to anyone joining us, as will any IT skills to get you up and running should you require them. All you need is a willingness to help people.
The responsibilities of our office volunteers vary, as we take on tasks best suited to each of us; such as processing volunteer applications, putting together displays or placing opportunities on our website, though we all chip in with greeting any visitors and assisting them with whatever requests or queries they have. There are many different roles at the Centre so let us know what you are comfortable doing or what you would like to learn as this can provide a great way of gaining experience.
