Do you have green fingers? Would you like to use your gardening skills to help others? We have a beautiful garden site based at Springfield Hospital in Tooting where we provide horticulture training for disabled people and those facing health-related barriers to employment. This helps them move towards personal goals, opening up career opportunities and building confidence and self esteem. 

We need volunteers to help us on-site; you don’t need advanced gardening skills, you just need to be passionate about greenery and keen to support people with learning disabilities. You'll assist with garden maintenance as well as the educational, personal, and social development of our students. We’ve got lots of exciting new projects on the go, so now is a great time to join in the fun.

Time commitment

We're looking for a minimum commitment of 1 day per week, Monday - Friday - 10am - 4pm... or more, if you have time!
What measures have you put in place to ensure volunteers’ safety during COVID-19?
We constantly monitor the covid-19 guidelines and update our policies accordingly. We encourage those who can to wear masks in our buildings, there are sanitising stations throughout our buildings, and all staff and volunteers are required to test regularly.

This organisation is one of our community partner organisations.

Like all volunteer recruiters we work with, they have signed up to our service standards, agreeing to abide by our policy on partnership working.

In addition, the team here at Students’ Union UCL Volunteering Service is here to support you throughout your volunteering journey – you can get in touch at any time with any questions, queries or problems you encounter.
