Thinking of Volunteering?
We have a really good volunteering website. It has all our opportunities on it and is easily searchable for organisations, area and types of opportunity.

We warmly encourage companies, groups of employees or self employed people to come and volunteer. This counts towards CSR (corporate social responsibility.)
We can sort out the whole process for you. Just email firstname.lastname@example.org
Here is a short film all about it:
Here are the AVIVA volunteers hard at work (having a lot of fun!) at the Bursledon Brickworks during Volunteers Week.
As well as our external opportunities via our volunteer centre, we have a number of in house volunteering opportunities available here at One Community. This includes with:

Back to the Future Re-engagement Scheme Volunteers
We need your help, here is why.
Loneliness and social isolation is a huge problem among older people and others who find it difficult to get out and about. One Community runs a support scheme running across the borough of Eastleigh to address that need.
The scheme, Back to the Future, which provides support to older and physically disabled people, is looking for friendly people who can commit to between eight and twelve visits to one person at a time.
Volunteers visit a client at home for an hour or two, to chat to someone who finds it difficult to get out of the house and finds themselves feeling lonely. Our aim is to support the client to re-engage with their community, by perhaps going to a lunch club, do their own shopping, with the aim of them eventually going out on their own.
Being a volunteer visitor is a very flexible role, with visits arranged at the mutual convenience of the volunteer and client. It is a role that fit around any other commitments you may have. While volunteers are welcome from across the borough, volunteers are particularly needed in the Southern Parishes of Botley, Bursledon, Hamble, Hedge End, Hound, Netley and West End to meet the needs of local people. Training is given and full support and supervision is provided, with mileage expenses paid at 45p per mile.
