- Come as you are for our one off volunteering events!
- In and around Southampton
If you don’t have time to join our regular volunteering activities, why not sign up to hear about our one off volunteering opportunities, where you can come as you are and contribute where you can to an activity that will benefit the community.
Past examples of activities include gardening, tech support at a local library, and supporting older adults with fun activities.
Click apply to join our mailing list for one off opportunities, and you will hear about them as we organise them!
There are loads of benefits for you if you get involved with Southampton Hub. These include:
- Having an impact in the community, even if only for a day! You can make a difference and support active citizenship
- You can meet new people and see new areas of Southampton
- You can enhance your well-being by contributing to something positive
We’ve assessed the accessibility of all our opportunities and are able to discuss these with you prior to the event, this includes any reasonable adjustments we can make. If you have any questions about accessibility, or want to make request a reasonable adjustment, please reach out to Catherine at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Some examples of reasonable adjustments we can offer include:
- Using an expensed taxi service to aid mobility conditions
- Making sure there is seating with no arms
Our activities are all open for everyone so if you’ve not been involved in social action before, or you’re apprehensive about getting involved, reach out to Catherine at email@example.com. All of our opportunities practice a safe space policy meaning they are supportive, non-judgemental and always willing to listen.
For one off opportunities we operate a mailing list, so you will hear about upcoming events as they are confirmed.
It’s natural to feel nervous when you try new things, but don’t let you put that off. If you want to talk to a member of our team before applying or attending a session you can email them. Or if you’re not sure who to speak to email firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll get back to you.
Some things we recommend often include joining the programme with a friend – you could sign up together and come to the same session so that you’ll have a friendly face. Alternatively, you could arrange to meet a member of our team before a session so that you get to know each other 1-1 and can travel together. We’ll work together to find a solution which supports you to get involved, whatever that may be.
