Volunteer with us

Getting Involved

Volunteers are an integral part of Shama Women’s Centre; in supporting the Centre in carrying out the work we do. Volunteering for example is a great way of gaining a rich and rewarding experience, skills as well making new friends.

It is also a stepping stone in to employment and as such our volunteers are supported through the Centres – Information, Advice and Guidance Service for instance to develop their CV and  interviewing skills.

Do you have something to share? Are you bringing value to the community or you just want to make a difference? Find out what we’re up to and get involved.
