Volunteers at Eastlea Community Centre

The Centre welcomes and provides opportunities for volunteers. Our volunteers are central to the services we provide and considered very much part of the team. Volunteering can be a very rewarding experience for volunteers, as well as providing an invaluable contribution to the Centre and the communities it supports. Volunteering is a great way to meet new people, gain experience, share skills and make a big difference to your community.

Apprenticeships & Student Placements

We recognise that qualifications and training are an important contribution to the quality of the services provided by the Centre.  We offer apprenticeships and placements to students undertaking different qualifications and for school pupils on work experience.    We aim to provide a learning environment that contributes to the successful completion of their studies, and experiences that provide examples of quality practice in their education.
