Get Involved

We would love to welcome you as a volunteer at the Greenstead Community Centre! Volunteering is a great way to get involved with your local community, meet new friends and learn new skills.

There are many different ways in which you can get involved…here are a few suggestions:

  • Help to supervise Youth Club
  • Help with events or activities at the centre
  • Get involved with setting up bookings
  • Overseeing wedding or party packages
  • Taking orders and serving in the café
  • Covering the centre office
  • Assist with marketing and publicity
  • Help to supervise the youth café

Tell us your interests and skills. Everyone has something to offer and the more support we get, the more we can offer to our local community.

What’s in it for me?

Volunteering at the centre will give you a chance to build your skills and work experience with the potential for free training (dependant on your role).

You might be retired and looking for something to fill your day, you might want to give something back to your community or you might want to volunteer before you feel ready to return to a work environment after having children.

Whatever your reason, volunteering at the centre is an ideal opportunity to become part of a fun and friendly team, working to develop the community centre and provide the very best facility to the local community.

"Volunteering in the Centre Café has helped me to get out and meet people locally after retiring, I have met so many new friends and really enjoy getting out of the house."

Eileen - Greenstead Resident & Volunteer

"I felt lost and alone after giving up work to raise my two stepchildren. Washing, ironing and constant clearing up were just not doing it for me - a domestic goddess I am not!! Then I started to volunteer here - it's great! My house may look like a rubbish dump, but at least I'm happy when I pick up the kids and greet my fiancé in the evenings with a smile!"

Sarah - Greenstead Resident & Volunteer

Trustee responsibilities

Legal responsibility for the community centre rests with its trustees, the Greenstead Community Association, registered charity 1082081. Trustees meet bi-monthly with an Annual General Meeting occurring every Autumn.

The purpose of the board of trustees is to support the future development of the community centre in conjunction with the permanent staff employed by the GCA.

Two regular sub-groups support the Association by overseeing development in Finance and General Purposes and Events and Activities. The trustees work on a voluntary basis and give their time and skills to support the Community Centre achieve its goals and objectives.
