Volunteer with us

 Interested in volunteering with us?
We love our volunteers!
We couldn’t do what we do without lots of help.

 We usually have opportunities for volunteers to join regular activities, such as our Lunch Club for older people, the Community Garden Group or activities with small children.  Or you could come and help in the office – a great opportunity to learn job skills.  Our Music Academy (PAM) welcomes volunteers with a musical background and our Community Journalists are always on look out for people with media/journalism skills.  Or maybe you’d like to help out once in a while when we run events?

Whatever your interest, we’d love to hear from you.

Our volunteers love being part of the Pembroke House team too.
Here’s some of the things they say:

Linda Heroes

I’ve been coming to Pembroke House since 1966….I love the 

atmosphere – it’s really warm and welcoming and there’s always so much going on.  I like being friendly with people; for me it’s about unity in the community.  The Pembroke has helped me a lot and now I can help other people.  Linda.


I’ve volunteered at Lunch Club for the past two years.  I love everything about it!  I come here every week just laughing and smiling all the way through.  Joan.


I came to give back to the community through volunteering but I find I’m developing skills I didn’t realise I was lacking.  Tom
