Style Acre has been a part of the local community for over twenty years and during this time, we have relied on volunteers to add value to our work. We are very grateful to our volunteers who donate their time to us – be it a few hours a week or a month. With over 40 volunteers currently supporting us, we have a wide range of opportunities opportunities including: helping out at our Tea Room in Blewbury, where we support people with learning disabilities to gain work experience assisting in our Charity Shop in Wallingford offering your skills – we are especially interested in skills in art, music or sports spending a little time with someone we support asking your company to team volunteer at our one of our gardens or community hubs helping us put on events throughout the county We would love to hear from you if you are interested in volunteering for us. There is no set amount of time that you have to offer us and we will do everything we can to work around your availability. Get in touch with our Volunteer Coordinator on 01491 827593.
60 minutes of your time is all we need to make a difference to someone we support. If you become a Just 60 Minutes volunteer, we will match your skills, hobbies or interests with our beneficiaries. Volunteers are running baking sessions, making jewelery, providing IT support, driving our beneficiaries to appointments and being a friend. Please get in touch if you would like to join this wonderful group of enablers!
As a mum to a young woman with learning disabilities, life had become very difficult and I felt isolated. I decided to volunteer at the tea room to give something back, for everything they have done for Rachel and volunteering made me feel worthy too. I now have a career at the tea room, so Style Acre doesn’t only provide opportunities for the people they support! If you’re thinking about volunteering for Style Acre, I say ‘go for it’ – we will give you a big, warm welcome! Tracy
