Volunteer with Us
Plumtree is a busy organisation and our wonderful volunteers assist us in a variety of ways. Some attend weekly while others come whenever their own busy lives allow. Whatever your capacity, we would love to hear from you!
Volunteers are offered an induction and support from a member of the team. If you have a particular interest or skill and would like to talk about volunteering, let us know.
Volunteers must be 18 years or older. You will need a verifiable Working With Children Registration number (issued through the RTA). You will also be subject to a National Police Certificate Clearance.
Over the past year, volunteers have played an important role assisting staff in the Preschool and in Playgroups. Volunteers have used their personal and professional skills to help us improve our office and IT systems, to communicate our message more effectively and to make resources for our staff to use with children and families.
