Coin Street Community Builders
The Coin Street Community Programmes Team deliver a range of programmes to local people through promoting health and wellbeing, creativity and self expression, employment and enterprise and skills and learning for life. We have a range of opportunities including one-off activities, regular sessions and project based programmes. We always have high demand for volunteers for our tutoring programme…

Make local green spaces more colourful and vibrant through helping with planting and weeding. Volunteering in the sessions will also improve health and reduce isolation of participants by growing food to share and supporting those who need help to get involved or just want to have a chat.

  • Help set up and ensure the space is safe and welcoming
  • Welcome participants
  • Take part in gardening activities both inside and outside
  • Prepare refreshments and healthy snacks with the participants
  • Chat and listen to participants Help tidy up and debrief after the session
