Volunteering at Spectrum

Can you help us make a difference in the local community?

Have you been looking to start volunteering?

Whether you can help for an hour a week or several, frequently or infrequently, this really makes a huge difference to what we can provide as a children’s charity. Your time and help also allow us to increase the number of children and families that we can support differently. Your help can come in many forms. This can be assisting at a session or event, fundraising, administration and media tasks, to name but a few.

One of the most important areas of focus for the Spectrum team moving forward is our volunteering channel. As our volunteering team grows, this allows us to cover many more tasks that benefit everyone involved with Spectrum.

We appreciate that everyone has families and work taking up their everyday lives, but if you think you could even provide us with a small amount of your time here and there, then we would love to hear from you!

The only stipulations that we have in line with our volunteer policy are that you will need to complete a Enhanced DBS Check (former CRB) and safeguarding training. We are certain you will find being part of Team Spectrum both a lot of fun and hugely rewarding.

New Volunteering Positions

We will be creating additional volunteer positions at Spectrum during the course of the year; many more will also follow in the future to help us sustain and manage our growth. Please do keep checking back for more information on these.

Future Volunteering Roles at Spectrum

The following volunteering roles will be available at Spectrum in the coming months.

All of our volunteering roles will include an induction period, allowing you and us to find out what suits you best and also enable you to get to know our fantastic team. During this period, we will also complete your DBS check and give you access to safeguarding training due to the nature of our work. There are also plenty of other opportunities to expand your skill sets further.
