Camp Volunteer

Organisation: 

Change the lives of children affected by serious illness and their families.

Over The Wall is a national charity that runs camps for seriously ill children. We provide a bit of respite for children whose lives are filled with hospital visits and medication. We rely on our volunteers to help our campers relax and discover they can achieve things they didn’t think they were capable of.

Wild East Project Volunteer

Do you enjoy working with community groups and children?

Our Wild East project connects people all ages with the hidden nature and history of two well-loved green spaces in East London.

Volunteers engage with families and community groups in a variety of outdoor activities; they will use their creativity to find new ways to engage with the public and will support individual and small groups in discovering wildlife, habitats and the history of these two remarkable places.

Outdoor Education Volunteer

Wild Schools aim to deliver great learning experiences to local primary students through outdoor education.

Using the varied environment of the West Ham Park, sessions are delivered in all primary subjects which are engaging, hands on and memorable. Each session is designed to suit the needs of a specific class in collaboration with the teacher.

So far we have taught over 5000 students outside since the project began in October 2016 in subjects as diverse as maths, art, local history and geography.

Surrey Docks Farm is a lively working farm on the river Thames. We are looking for volunteers to support the delivery of our weekend youth clubs. This is a great opportunity for those considering careers in teaching, youth work or environmental education. Join our team and find a bit of countryside right in the centre of the city!

Pin Badge Volunteer

Do you have a few hours to spare each week? We are looking for people to place and manage five or more pin badge boxes in suitable shops and attractions within your community. We will ask you to visit these sites every month, count and bank at any post office or Pay Point location and replenish boxes with pin badges.
