Volunteering Team

Join the Coram’s Fields volunteering team and do something incredible for your community!


Our amazing volunteers are a lifeline to us here at Coram’s Fields. As we have emerged from lockdown, they have rolled up their sleeves, donated their time and helped the park look better than ever! Would you be interested in joining them as a Coram’s Fields volunteer? Click here to sign up now!

What we’re looking for

We have a wide range of ways you can get involved. Volunteers may stick to one task or mix it up a little. We’re looking for teams to help:

  • Raise awareness of our fundraising efforts by talking to visitors about our emergency appeal, how to become a regular donor and signing people up to our mailing list.
  • Support us with park upkeep, including planting and gardening and keeping the park tidy throughout the day.
  • Be a trusted point of contact on site, for visitors, talking to them about Coram’s Fields and providing up to date information on the park and services.

What we’ll need from you

When volunteering at Coram’s Fields, we ask the following of you:

  • Most of all, we need you to be a friendly, welcoming face for our visitors, comfortable with speaking with the public.
  • We need you to support us with our different planting and gardening projects around the park as well as keeping the park tidy.
  • We need you to be dependable and punctual and are asking all volunteers to commit at least 3hrs a week (or 12 hours a month) but we’d love people to do more if they can!
  • You’ll have plenty of support, but you’ll also need to work without supervision, so will need to use your own initiative.

What you’ll get in return

On top of the satisfaction of providing vital support to the Coram’s Fields community, you will receive:

  • A volunteer induction full of all you need to know about the park and your role within it before you commence your volunteering.
  • Weekly briefings so you know what needs to be done for the week ahead.
  • Regular ongoing support from our team on site.
  • Lunch provided if you are with us all day.
  • Parking on site if you’re coming from a distance.

I joined the gardening club after lockdown. It's amazing to spend time outdoors, doing physical exercise, learning new skills and meeting new people while helping and doing some good for the community, all in one! - Berta
The opportunity to get out in the fresh air and do something positive in a green and friendly environment definitely lifts my spirits and helps me feel more connected to others in the local community. - Helen

Starting in Spring 2021, our Greener Futures Project has brought local children and families, schools and partner organisations together to transform our green spaces at Coram’s Fields. Led by a team of community volunteers, the project has helped empower our local community to take ownership of a number of previously underused green spaces across our seven acre site, creating growing hubs and developing natural habitats for our resident bees and other local wildlife.

In addition to improving access to and the quality of green areas for our community, our volunteers have benefited from having direct access to gardening, and training, accreditation and development opportunities. Volunteers have harvested their freshly grown fruit and vegetables to use at home, and for use in our social enterprise café.

Our green space and play facilities are a vital community resource, they support the mental and physical wellbeing and development of children of all ages. For many of our local children, we are considered as their back garden and families frequently visit us every day. We enable children to run around, discover nature and most importantly, play.

This Project wants to inspire our volunteers and local community to learn about gardening, growing food, the environment, wildlife, and the importance of biodiversity through educational sessions and workshops. Get involved!
