Interested in making a difference in your local community? Volunteering is a great way to gain skills, meet new people and do something great for a cause you care about.
Connect with Charities is a series of online workshops that will give you the chance to hear from a range of organisations and learn about what they do as well as how you can volunteer your time. There are hundreds of volunteering opportunities across London and each workshop will focus on a different theme, helping you understand more about the different sectors.
This event is all about Political Change and will be looking at volunteer roles that could make a real difference to the lives of others. Whether you are interested in working in Health and social care, or you’re looking for a truly rewarding volunteering opportunity, there will be something here for you.
During the workshop, you’ll hear from each different charity having the opportunity to ask any questions you might have.
