WHAT ARE REGULAR PROJECTS?*

 

Regular Projects is the name we give to volunteering opportunities that happen on a weekly basis. Every regular project has at least one weekly sessions which you can attend, so just pick whatever day and time suits you best. Just because it runs weekly doesn't mean you have to attend weekly, you could simply pop by once or try a different project each week!

 

There are fifteen regular projects overall and they cover almost every interest you could have: art, animals, coding, the environment… We’ve got it all! Absolutely no prior experience is needed for any of the projects.

 

Ten of our regular projects exclusively go into schools, both primary and secondary, to lead hour long sessions with children. Whether it’s teaching maths, learning about ancient Egypt or erupting papier-mâché volcanos, volunteers enjoy spending time with kids and having some time away from the scary and sometimes stressful world of grown-ups. Due to current Government Restrictions, alternative sessions are offered until schools reopen for volunteering projects.

 

Two of our regular projects visit care homes to spend time with elderly residents and although care homes are known for their peace & tranquillity, it can get pretty wild when our volunteers attend. Singing, dancing, pancake flipping… These are just some of the things that regularly go on inside these projects. Due to current Government Restrictions, alternative sessions are offered until care homes reopen for any visitors. You can still help to decrease social isolation by participating in these projects.

 

However, if people (old or young) aren’t your thing, then we have regular projects which go into animal sanctuaries and even Colchester Zoo! There is a regular project for everyone and all costs are covered, material and travel. So what are you waiting for?

 

If you want to take on the role of Session Leader, drop us a message here.

 

*Once you are register please bear with us and our wonderful volunteers will get in touch explaining their sessions. All regular projects start from the 18th October and we hope to send messages to all volunteers that sign up by 11th October.
