The project made me believe in myself… I have much more confidence and am now going to university – I would not have dreamt of that before…” (St. Martin’s Centre Volunteer, 2012).

Welcome to our ‘Community Connections Volunteering Project.’ This is your one stop shop for volunteering information and news about the volunteers in our centre!

St. Martin’s Centre prides itself on the volunteers who give their time and effort to support the work that we do in the community. The centre boasts 25 regular volunteers in a range of different roles from supporting our youth clubs to helping out in play sessions.

We invest heavily in the training and support for our volunteers and have a dedicated Volunteer Coordinator on site. We believe that volunteers are a vital part of our team and we value their energy, drive and contribution. As one of our volunteers has remarked:


I think St. Martin’s Centre is an amazing place to volunteer. The staff are outstanding (in their) support towards volunteers. I personally feel more appreciated within this establishment than I have in any paid job. The centre has a wonderful positive atmosphere which is created by both the staff and volunteers. I couldn’t highly recommend the centre enough to anyone thinking about volunteering” (St. Martin’s Centre Volunteer, 2012).
