Over 350 local people volunteer their time with the Octavia Foundation each year, to support our work in central and west London supporting local people during times of personal difficulty or crisis.
All of our volunteers receive full training and an induction relevant to their role. We reimburse agreed travel and lunch expenses and organise social events for our volunteers throughout the year.
Every year we celebrate the fantastic contribution that volunteers make to Octavia at an Awards evening.
Octavia Volunteer Celebration 2018
Volunteering in our charity shops presents a fantastic opportunity to gain new skills and experiences to enhance your CV.
We match volunteer befrienders to spend an hour a week with the resident and we ask for a commitment of six months.
We are currently looking for volunteer youth workers to support activities at BASE and to support our team on other projects throughout the year.
We are always happy to receive enquiries about corporate volunteering opportunities and groups of volunteers.
Volunteer with us in our offices to support our work with local people and communities in London
