What is VInvolved?

This is an organisation centred in YMCA Redhill and offers a wide range of volunteering opportunities. Some of the schemes and opportunities are outlined below, however there are often many new projects which are introduced regularly, so contact them directly for more information. VInvolved also credits you for any volunteering that you have done, no matter what it may be, so it is well worth registering so that any hours you undertake will go to further use in the form of a certificate!

Available Projects

Once you are trained, you can work on days that you are free during the holidays and lead children in play activity. You also get 50 pounds expenses money per a week!
