Your time is a valuable commodity and can be used in so many ways. Just a few hours a week can make a big difference and helps our funds stretch so much further.

“Have just finished a weeks placement in Canterbury umbrella centre, what a wonderful place, full of wonderful people, the staff are professional friendly and approachable, if anyone is in need of some time out, a safe place and or is struggling mentally and feel they need to escape this place is extremely welcoming, you can go in and just have a cup of tea, or have a chat confidentially with a staff member Who can offer support and other services for you, I can not stress enough how wonderful this charity is! Thank You CUC for the experience and insight into how you support people everyday, I will hopefully see you all again soon” October 2019

We currently have volunteer vacancies for the kitchen and our fundraising team. Please pop in for a chat

If you have a skill to share or would like to help us either in our kitchen, participating in activities, organising trips or running creative workshops, giving information or, indeed, other activities that would benefit our members, our Centre Manager would love to hear from you. She will be happy to have an informal chat to see how we can use your skills and experience.

The amount of time you give us is up to you. Most people give a few hours a week.

We welcome young people or students on work placement who would like to put their spare time to good use.

Maybe you feel it is time to give something back to the community where you grew up; maybe you need work experience because you are hoping to go back to work – or maybe you just like helping others and would enjoy expanding and sharing your experience.
