Help us keep our outdoor green and social space in good order

Gardening / Outdoor work volunteers needed for Support U in RG1

Support U are looking for volunteers who can help us to maintain our green space and outside area hidden behind our building in the heart of Reading town centre.

The space is a fantastic resource for our service users throughout the year, but especially during the summer months, for everything from a quiet retreat to the scene of our BBQ socials.

The space needs a little bit of TLC to bring it back to life and then ongoing maintenance to keep it up to scratch. We would be keen for volunteers to really make the green space their own, taking on all aspects of its upkeep.

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.
