Volunteering opportunities for the first ever London Borough of Culture announced

Call out for residents to become official London Borough of Culture Volunteers and help play a vital role in the delivery of the year long programme.

Volunteer for Culture

Throughout the summer and autumn, Waltham Forest will be recruiting volunteers to help deliver London Borough of Culture 2019. Volunteers will be vital to ensuring that the year of culture is a success, from welcoming visitors to the borough, supporting large scale events, performing as cast members, mentoring young creatives and even planting flowers and beautifying the event sites. The opportunities to get involved are boundless and the experience of volunteering is guaranteed to be a memory everyone involved will cherish.

Their Culture Volunteers will be:

- Those who simply want to be involved – ‘happy to help’,

- Those who want to develop skills and increase employability,

- Those who have a specific area of expertise to donate.

An accredited volunteering programme will offer skills certificates, a rewards programme and personal references to those taking part.
