Become a volunteer

We have over 150 fantastic volunteers at One25. They provide a massive amount of support in effectively running our drop-in sessions, outreach, fundraising and office work. We also recruit volunteers to help out at our events. All volunteers receive a package of support including ongoing training and supervision.

If you are thinking about volunteering with us the first step would be to attend one of our Volunteer Information Evenings. This is an opportunity to find out more about how we work and the different roles available.

Following the Information Evening you will be invited to submit an application form and attend an informal interview. If you are applying for a frontline role in our Drop-in service or on our Outreach Van you would also need to attend a full-day Induction training.

Information evening: Monday 15th October, 6.00pm to 8.00pm  Click here to book your place
Application deadline: Friday 19th October, 5.00pm (informal interviews week beginning 22nd October)
Induction day: Thursday 1 November, 9.30am to 4.30pm.
