Handy person needed to help keep our space safe and welcoming

DIY / Maintenance volunteers needed for Support U in RG1

Support U are looking for volunteers who can help us with the maintenance of our building in the heart of Reading Town Centre.

The building provides a lovely welcoming space for those we support but as is common with a building of its age there are always lots of big and small jobs that need doing.

Ideal volunteers will have experience in a range of trades and have the appropriate accreditations. However, anyone with experience in painting and decorating, small-scale carpentry projects and general building maintenance would also be very welcome.

Volunteers will be able to work under the direction of the staff team and proactively to identify issues and set-up regular maintenance processes.

Support U is a volunteer lead charity with 30+ volunteers. You would be making a big difference for those who volunteer, work and use our service.
