Why volunteer with Canopy?
Volunteering at Canopy is being part of a team to renovate and decorate a house and make it into a new home for someone that is homeless. You do not need to have already tried DIY, we can teach you everything you’ll need to know. The best way to learn sometimes is to get stuck in and have a try.
You will get the opportunity to try painting, wall papering, sanding, laying laminate flooring, tiling, plastering and many more jobs to turn a derelict house into a new home. Once you have been here for a while, you’ll have the opportunity to pass on your new found skills to the newer volunteers.
Canopy has a friendly, relaxed attitude and is keen to welcome new volunteers. Aside from work, we have an office space with computers, laundry facilities, table football and a workshop. We go out on regular outings, play five aside football and spend time, chatting and drinking tea.
