Volunteer



The Helen Bamber Foundation would not be able to provide our vital services to survivors without our dedicated volunteers. We are extremely fortunate to have approximately £234,000 of pro bono services donated by volunteers each year. The Foundation is enormously grateful for the generosity and dedication of our volunteers.

Current volunteer opportunities include:

Computer Class Volunteer

This is an exciting opportunity to join the Creative Arts programme which provides a creative outlet, a community and an opportunity for clients to learn new skills. We have eight groups throughout the programme and are currently looking for a volunteer to join our computer class.

The computer class provides a vital opportunity for our clients to learn IT skills which they can then use to help to find new information, keep in touch with relatives and build their independence. The class has a wide range of levels, both of IT skills and English so adaptability is essential for the successful candidate.

Happy Baby Project Volunteers

The Happy Baby Project provides a safe and happy space with wrap around support for new and pregnant mums and their babies, who have been victims of modern slavery and gender based violence. This lively community provides yoga, English lessons, a big family style lunch and all the welfare, practical, legal and medical support.

We need volunteers who can come regularly on a Monday 11am – 3pm in Newington Green.  (Its fine if you can only manage twice a month). In the group you will be:

  • Supporting the mums by helping with looking after the babies while they participate in English and yoga classes (all in the same room).
  • Supporting the mums with simple welfare work, such as completing forms and making calls.
  • Teaching English.

We love it when volunteers feel able to bring their own babies and small children – and we welcome people of all ages and anyone who can help with translating in some of the more common languages, Arabic, French, Amharic and Albanian.
