Volunteering

Peabody's Volunteering Coordinator works with over 100 community groups and organisations that meet in Thamesmead. Many of which would not succeed without the commitment of residents, giving up their time to help others.

Whether you are interested in supporting a local community group, a health and wellbeing project, becoming a befriender, getting involved in an environmental project, gardening group or simply something else, get in touch and we can look at matching you to your preferred activity.
Why people volunteer

People volunteer for many reasons, the most common being:

  • For experience; volunteering looks great on a CV and may open doors in the future
  • To build confidence and make new friends; often if people have been out of work or the social loop for a while, getting back into the swing of things can be a daunting prospect
  • To give something back to the community; this may be because people have lived in an area for a while and want to contribute positively to their community
  • Do something in their spare time; this is a popular reason for those with young children, are retired or recently unemployed
