I am a Barnet council employee

Ready2Volunteer Employer Supported Volunteering

Volunteering Barnet supports Barnet Council in finding volunteering opportunities for staff within the local community. Barnet Council employees can spend up to two days per year (pro rata) volunteering for the benefit of their community. You can:

  1. Volunteer as a team
  2. Volunteer as an individual
  3. Support a particular cause of your choice

To search and apply for opportunities, register with us. Under ‘How did you hear about us?’, please select ‘Ready2Volunteer – Barnet Council’.

Volunteering time should be agreed between an employee and their line manager.

For more information, see the council’s ESV policy, speak to your line manager or contact us.

To get an idea of the kind of opportunities we offer, see the roles below.

East Barnet Festival

East Barnet Festival is made by its volunteers. North London’s biggest free-entry outdoor festival can’t happen without an army of supporters.

The Festival depends on donations – can you help us collect them? It takes time to set up stalls and tents, and to pack them up – can you lend our charities and traders a hand? And we’re hosting London’s biggest free outdoor car festival. Fancy directing some traffic – to keep the Festival in order and the public safe?

If you can spare just two or more hours on Friday 5th, Saturday 6th or Sunday 7th July, join us in Oak Hill Park and help make this year’s East Barnet Festival the best ever.

Friend in Need Community Centre

Volunteers help organise activities, serving tea and dinner, chat with old people and more on weekdays between 10am and 4pm. Tasks usually are domestic and the roles do not require specific training or skills, just common sense.

Volunteering with Norwood

For group volunteering, Norwood can support up to 15 volunteers in their homes and family centres. These tend to be practical gardening or decorating projects to improve the living environment for the people they support.

The general volunteering programme is for individuals who wish to volunteer within Norwood services. Volunteers can support children or family centres, work in their retail shops or work directly with service users to master a new skill or enjoy an activity.

Colindale Communities Trust

This is a skilled volunteering opportunity to help the trust as it will be adopting new financial software (Xero) from the 1st April 2019. They require 2 days worth of volunteering to transfer information from excel to new software and provide guidance on how to use the new software if possible.
