Volunteering

The LBHF Volunteer Work Placement scheme actively seeks to open up opportunities to residents who are disabled, long term unemployed or returning to work after childcare to develop their skills and work experience.

We welcome applications from unemployed Hammersmith & Fulham residents who: 

  • are in need of basic work experience to improve confidence and motivation
  • need to develop work place skills and experience to enable them to progress onto further training leading towards employment goals
  • have demonstrated a commitment to gaining employment but require practical work experience to compliment training and/or qualifications
  • have recently been made redundant and want to keep experience and skills up to date while applying for new employment
  • are aged 16+ (there is no maximum age limit to participate on the scheme)
