Fundraising Volunteer - Stevenage

We need someone who can help us to raise funds to keep our important work going. 

Do you want to help your community and want to volunteer for an important local charity? If you could spare a few hours each week, we would love for you to be part of the team.

To be a volunteer, you don’t need any qualifications although if you have specific skills that might be useful, do make those known on your application. What we do need in reliability and a commitment to help regularly and to be friendly and want to work as part of a really inclusive team.

We will provide you with an induction, training and support and you will be fully insured. We will give you a reference if you are looking to volunteer for a while until you have experience to look for paid employment – helpful if you want to improve your confidence when re-entering the job market.

We are an equal opportunities employer, follow all Safeguarding guidelines, Disability Confident Committed employer and a Mindful employer.

“Volunteering at The Living Room has made me revaluate my approach to many things, particularly addiction. It has also given me a timestamp for my week (something to look forward to), continuing stimulation and interaction with others. I believe I make a contribution – in a small way- which in turn gives me satisfaction that my time is well spent.”

Trustee on the Board of Trustees

Looking to become a trustee in Hertfordshire? Are you passionate about your community? 

We are looking for professionals to sit on our board, who have an interest in supporting adults through our therapeutic model.  We provide an abstinence based group therapy service to support people who have an addiction or their family and carers onto the road of recovery.  By joining our board of trustees you will help our 22 year old charity continue to provide an excellent, free service, for people with any addiction to find recovery through our group therapy.

Our trained counsellors have all lived with addiction and are in long term recovery themselves, supported by a committed and talented staff team.  Annually we support around 600 Hertfordshire residents and their loved ones to find tools to live without substances or behaviours to break the cycle or addiction.

Our board of trustees is diverse and effective, with good relationships with the Executive Team running the organisation of 44 staff and many volunteers.  We are looking for people who would bring their HR knowledge, their Criminal Justice knowledge and/or therapeutic knowledge, in particular, although really happy to welcome new ideas and skills.

We ask that you commit to attend four to six board meetings (either in person or via Zoom), plus one annual strategy day, per year.  This is an unpaid role, but reasonable expenses are reimbursed.
