Hi all,

Looking for any recommendations for local (Ed and Peckham) volunteering opportunities.

I have looked into FoodCycle Peckham but it seems that all the volunteer slots get booked up quite quickly and I am quite keen to use some of my spare time helping others!

All advice appreciated, thanks

There's also Link Age Southwark - befriending and helping elderly/housebound people. There is a post about them on the West Dulwich Forum.

Hope you hear back soon.

I offered some volunteering to the local Oxfam shop around Oct/Nov last year as they posted something on the Herne Hill Forum but they were not very positive and more or less re-buffed me in a phone call because of the days I was available.

Have you thought about Girl Guiding or Scouting? I volunteer with a local Brownies group and a local Girl Guides group and find it very rewarding. There are a number of groups around Dulwich which always could do with volunteers. PM me if you'd like to know more.

You could try Good Gym? If you can get/have a DBS check, you can do tasks to help local people. (You don't have to run)
[www.goodgym.org]

Specifically [www.goodgym.org] or [www.goodgym.org]

I haven't done these, just the weekly group runs, but I think the others are more flexible to your timings...
