It’s Volunteers’ Week!

This week, June 3rd—9th, we’re celebrating 40 years of Volunteers’ Week 2024. We’re deeply grateful for the significant contributions of ALL the volunteers who have supported our charity since the 1980s. Their dedication has made a profound difference, and we’re excited to inspire more wonderful folks to join us in making an impact.

Volunteering is a wonderful way to give back to society and help others, and it makes you feel great. You can learn new skills or share your own, meet great new people, and make a huge difference. Our volunteers are essential to our community and help us support more adults with learning disabilities and autism. They help in many different ways, too!

What Our Volunteers Say

Lainey: “I volunteer for Camphill Milton Keynes to make a positive impact and contribute to creating a supportive and inclusive environment for all. Plus, they make the best bread.”

Olivia: “I volunteer for Camphill Community because the work and support they give to their residents are amazing. I love that I can contribute to this brilliant charity.”

Thank you to all our volunteers, past, present and future!

Volunteering at Camphill MK

We welcome individuals and groups to volunteer with us in various ways. You can become a regular volunteer within our workshops or community, come along with a group of colleagues for full—or half-day projects, or support our events team on an ad hoc basis. 

Events & Adhoc Volunteering

You could support us by attending events in the wider community, manning a stall, collecting donations, or just sharing stories of Camphill’s good work.

Workshop/Community Volunteering

You could drive our residents from A to B or assist teaching in our Tech Lab, Newsletter, Gardens, Café, Drama, Chrysalis Theatre, and Arts and Crafts Workshops. Individuals often bring their unique skills but also seek to gain experience in certain areas, increase their friendship groups, and help those in their community.

Discover more about our workshops here.

Corporate Volunteering/CSR Days

We welcome teams of volunteers to support us in many ways. Often, staff teams join our gardening team to tend to our Roundhouse Gardens, planting or harvesting the next crop to feed our residents or supply the café. We also welcome support looking after our theatre or benefiting from any specialist skills your business might be able to offer, i.e., digital ambassadors, marketing and design work, etc. 

We have several well-appointed meeting rooms with Wi-Fi, smart TVs, and a flexible layout. Hire you our fully equipped theatre and conferencing spaces, or welcome specialist staff members to help us enhance the business.
