Volunteer Your Time

Giving of yourself is a very special kind of giving and our volunteers play a vital role in creating the warm community atmosphere that exists within all of our buildings. We could not possibly organise the many events and activities, which are so important to the social life of our tenants, without their help and support. We are also very grateful to anyone who can volunteer to help at head office as this enables us to keep our administrative overheads to a minimum, ensuring that donations go to where they will do most good.

We are always looking for volunteers across both North West and North East London to help organise activities and events within each building. Whether you can help on a regular or an occasional basis we would love to hear from you, so please either phone Judy on 020 8371 6611 ext 604; email judy@jbd.org or click here to apply on-line.

The events that we offer to our tenants typically include:

  • Breakfasts
  • Lunches
  • Coffee mornings
  • Discussion groups
  • Computer clubs
  • Armchair keep fit
  • Bingo
  • Quizzes
  • Birthday celebrations
  • Celebrations around Jewish festivals

If you have a particular hobby or interest that you think might appeal we would always be happy to discuss this with you, for example running an art class/creative writing session/bridge club etc.

In addition to these organised events we are also happy to arrange for friendly visiting to individual tenants.

Our head office, which is in Mill Hill East, is always very grateful for anyone willing to volunteer to help with various administrative issues. If you would be happy to be contacted on an ad hoc basis to see if you can help out in this area please either phone Judy on 020 8371 6611 ext 604 or email judy@jbd.org
