Volunteers Week 2015

Published: 3 Jun 2015


We are celebrating the contribution of our volunteers for National Volunteers Week (1-7 June) and saying thank you for being at the heart of our work since 1884.

Toynbee Hall’s frontline services rely on our volunteers. Last year, more than 400 volunteers gave 24,845 hours, equivalent to over 1,000 days, of their time providing access to support, advice services and working behind the scenes.

This year, to celebrate and inspire the next generation of volunteers, we asked our current volunteers how their experience at Toynbee Hall has impacted their lives.

 "Toynbee Hall has helped me feel a part of East London and give back to my community”
Jenny, Make It! volunteer

Volunteering has brought so much into my life. Interacting with others and learning new skills gave me a feeling of self worth".
Laurie, Wellbeing Centre volunteer

"I love to connect with people and places. I am heartedly attached to Toynbee Hall”
Rasna, Wellbeing Centre volunteer

Life Changing”
Ben Rowland, Chairman and former volunteer

From everyone at Toynbee Hall, we say a huge thank you to all of our volunteers past and present. Their support enables our services to be as effective as possible and help more people in our community.

If you’re considering volunteering, then we have a variety of roles to choose from. Take a look at our current opportunities to develop news skills, meet personal goals and give something back to the community.
