'I got support from St Augustines and saw how many people are helped and decided I wanted to give help back. I started with gardening and DIY, and now I run the tech studio. I like to be around kind people, it's like a family for me.'  - Nawroz 

Volunteers keep us running; we work with around 180! We try to provide volunteering opportunities that suit different interests, skills and levels of experience.  Some roles require a regular commitment each week; others can be more flexible. 

Our volunteering programme involves:

Please contact Rabia if you are interested in volunteering with us.
