Newham Council Volunteering
We are a Council led programme with great volunteering opportunities on offer.  Working in collaboration with the Students' Union UCL Volunteering Service we're promoting specific volunteering opportunities directly supported by us within the Borough of Newham. 

How would you like to support your local library? There are 10 libraries in Newham and they all run a series of different and exciting activities and sessions, which run during the day, in the evenings and on the weekends. Most require volunteer support. You will be volunteering under the guidance of the Library Staff who will guide and train you as you go along.


Support the running of Newham libraries through supporting a range of their activities including Homework clubs, chess club, do it online, storytelling, book club, stay and play, arts and crafts, family film club & movie nights, games club, English conversation club, toy library, community champion, get connected, basic computer skills, and so much more.

Time commitment

This is a flexible opportunity and you will be required to agree when you can attend directly with the provider of the opportunity.

From Thursday 09 June 2022 till Friday 28 June 2024
Application deadline

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 to keep you safe and supported whilst you volunteer.

You’ll never be out of pocket for volunteering through us – with in-London travel expenses to and from your volunteering guaranteed.

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 with us at any time.
