Our new ACTIV project seeks to help Wolverhampton residents find gainful volunteering opportunities to build their experience and skills!
From retail positions, to gardening events and even working here in the office with us, the ACTIV team is determined to give local people access to the best volunteering opportunities in the area!
We’ll also be providing workshops covering the following topics:
Introduction to British Sign Language, Health & Wellbeing Sessions, Tackling Mental Health Issues, Financial and Budgeting Skills, Employability Skills, Value of Volunteering Sessions, Digital Skills Training to enable those that have low digital skills to improve their IT/Digital skills and knowledge and provide greater access to public services and local events.
Recently our volunteers have been helping out in the gardens at the Bilston Craft Gallery.
This is a 6 week programme where we are delivering basic horticultural training to Wolverhampton residents who are looking to upskill themselves, gain experience, improve health and wellbeing, overall tackling chronic loneliness. On the Project, participants can expect to work within groups and individually to complete small tasks which, together, will develop the garden at Bilston Craft Gallery. This is led by our previous client : Rudgewood, a company that offers horticultural services across the Black Country. Initially they received self-employment support from us at Access to Business to develop their company, leading to them receiving a grant to support their services.
At the end of the 6-week Programme, if the horticulturalists are happy with the progression made on the Project, participants may receive their Level 1 certificate in horticulturalism!
We can help find volunteering opportunities in the following sectors:
Admin, Retail, Catering, IT support, Reception, Our newly developed Project Community Garden, Art Gallery, Charity Work, Events Support, Social Media Management, Council and Public Health Placements, Wolverhampton BID team and roles within development of a Project ‘Friends’ group.
