Volunteer with Us

Although we have a crack team behind the scenes in the office, we still rely on volunteer power to keep the Centre running.  From meeting and greeting hirers, to steering the direction of DCCA as a Trustee, we couldn’t do it without our wonderful helpers; a big thank you to you all.

Get Involved

If you’ve a hankering to get more involved in your community, then why not join our merry (and friendly) band of volunteers?

If you’ve got a skill or knowledge that you feel could benefit the Community Centre on a practical level please let us know.

From social media know-how to being a dab hand with a paint brush, if you’ve got the skills, we can put them to use!

Or if you want a more structured volunteering opportunity, we have the following roles to fill:

  • Key-holding: opening and closing the Centre for our hirers at a frequency that suits you
  • Trustee: help shape the future of Dean Court Community Centre. Meetings are held once per month and only last an hour.
  • Community Breakfast assistant: help us with taking orders, serving, cooking or tidying up after the crowds have gone. Our Community Breakfasts take place eight times per year, but there’s no obligation to help at each one.
  • Community Coffee assistant: serving up tea, coffee and cakes on Wednesday mornings. Or could you bake for us?
  • Event organising: join the team who put on our Christmas carols and other community celebrations.
  • Ad-hoc event assistant: just lend a hand as and when you can at our events

Community Cohesion

We’re not just getting people to volunteer at the Centre, we want to bring people together, full stop.

We all have passions and skills; would you be interested in sharing yours with other like-minded residents? Possible groups we envisage being run in our community include: 

a. Gardening/produce sharing
b. Photography
c. Book club
d. Community Choir
e. Skill-swap/community loan scheme
f. Film club
g. Anything else!

Would you help us get them off the ground? If you think you could help or would be interested in joining such a group, tell us more on deancourtcc@gmail.com or contact us
