We Need You!

Garden Needs values the work and skills that volunteers bring.

Garden Needs provides volunteers with a relaxed environment, a place where they can build their confidence, knowledge, social skills and communications at a pace that they are comfortable with.  Volunteers are offered a variety of tasks to work on – some as groups or some on their own! Choice is essential; we know that some volunteers want physical work, other want to grow flowers or vegetables, water plants, cook lunch.

Choice is offered within a structured programme of work, volunteers will plan when to undertake tasks, what materials they need, what extra support or expertise is needed.

Volunteering Opportunities – every Tuesday and Thursday 10am – 4pm

In addition to the standard volunteering days, for those volunteers who want to lead or support a particular project we can offer more volunteering opportunities on other days of the week.

Why should I volunteer?

Volunteering can help to build confidence, you’ll meet new people, learn new skills, it provides structure for your week, it gets you out of the house and it can be a valuable aid to seeking paid employment in the future.

Anybody interested in volunteering please call Kate or Simone on 0161 212 4980 to arrange for a visit to check out what we can offer and help you to decide if Garden Needs is the right place for you.
