School Reading Volunteers *Urgent Required

Could you spare a small amount of time each week to help Portsmouth school children with their reading? 

We are looking to support schools in Portsmouth by having a team of reading volunteers, who will go into schools regularly and help the children with their reading skills. 

The volunteers will help by listening to them read, and talking to them about their books and reading choices 

A school reading volunteer is someone who volunteers at a local school to listen to pupils read one-to-one on a regular basis. Reading like this can help pupils to have more fun reading, develop their confidence and skill in reading, encourage them to read more and help them to overcome any challenges they face.


Family Activity Volunteer - Mary Rose 

As a member of our enthusiastic team of Mary Rose volunteers, you will support our visitor experience by delivering family activities and workshops based in our Learning Centre, one weekend a month and during school holidays.


Charity Shop Assistant - Moving on Project

we operate a small but friendly charity shop in Albert Road Southsea. We are looking for volunteers for various days and shifts. This shop helps us run The Moving on Project Portsmouth and is an extension of the project.


Befriender - Care Home 

We are looking for volunteers to support and assist the care teams who look after our residents (who have dementia or severe memory loss), some of whom receive no visitors and where loneliness is a  problem. Reminiscing, reading and chatting can help to improve the quality of life for our residents. This is a rewarding role that can be fun as well as challenging, and you can make a difference in the lives of vulnerable people.

Could you spare a few hours on a regular basis anytime between 10 am and 7 pm?

Good experience for someone thinking of going into care work, hospital work, or anyone with a caring nature and some free time! Could you make a difference and make a positive contribution to your community?


One to One short walks befriender 

Do you have a few hours to spare every week?

Do you want to support Older People in your local community?

If so, this is the role for you!

Our Volunteer Befrienders help improve the quality of life for older people who are socially isolated and may feel lonely. Our Befrienders are introduced to a member with the purpose of accompanying them on a short walk whilst spending time each week to bring companionship, and a chance to chat. The walks maybe just to post a letter, or walk in the park. The aim is to help increase the confidence of the older person to enable them to venture outside after being at home during this pandemic.


Knit to help Seafarers

We improve the lives of seafarers and fishers through our network of local chaplains and seafarer centres, expert information, advocacy, and spiritual support.

Seafarers are often ill-equipped to deal with the cold conditions they find onboard. Our volunteer knitters provide invaluable support for seafarers by helping them to keep warm.
