How to Volunteer With Us

There are two ways to volunteer at The Brunny:

1. Contact Us Direct

If you are interested in volunteering here contact our Centre Manager, Keith Lloyd. Do this by:

Keith will answer any questions you might have and arrange for you to come to Brunswick Youth and Community Centre to have a chat. Click here for directions. 

If a volunteering placement is agreed after your meeting, Keith will arrange for you to undergo a DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) Check (previously called a CRB (Criminal Records Bureau) check).  This background check reports on an applicant’s criminal record. We must obtain the DBS report in every case before agreeing to volunteer placements to ensure that our volunteers are suitable to work with children, young people, and vulnerable adults.

2. Contact Sefton CVS

Sefton CVS Volunteer Centre, part of Sefton MBC, assists individuals and organisations to “promote, deliver and develop high quality volunteering opportunities”.

The Volunteer Centre:

  • refers potential volunteers to organisations like Brunswick Youth and Community Centre
  • supports accreditation
  • provides recognition of volunteers’ efforts through the Volunteer Certificate Scheme.

To read more and download the required form go to the Sefton CVS website.

Why Volunteer?

Put simply: volunteering works!

Not only is it of great value to a charity such as ourselves, but a placement for a student or volunteer at Brunswick Youth and Community Centre is a valuable opportunity to build experience while learning about working within a youth work/ community work setting.

This is especially important for people looking for work. Click here to read about volunteering while getting benefits.

We appreciate the positive contribution that such committed and enthusiastic people bring to the Brunswick Youth & Community Centre. And our volunteers get a lot of satisfaction from their involvement.

We welcome volunteers of all ages. Some of our best and most committed volunteers are members of Mama Margaret St. James Pensioners Club. Helping each other nurture the next generation of gardeners is an important and fulfilling role.

For other volunteers, getting involved in our numerous programmes, such as the Junior Kids Club and Girls Group, gives them the opportunity to meld young minds and learn from our qualified staff.

Whatever the motivation, volunteers play a crucial role in helping us deliver our services, and are very welcome.
