Become a volunteer and help your community work for all

Volunteering is a great way to meet people and find fulfilling and worthwhile ways to get involved with your local community. And now finding out what volunteering opportunities are out there is easier than ever.  The Comm is now working with PAVO (Powys Association of Voluntary Organisations) to match volunteers with organisations working to improve life in the area.  Our volunteer coordinator Steph Griffiths is based in the Comm front office on Monday and Friday mornings and will be working alongside Ceri, the Centre’s Administrator. The volunteer coordinator role is paid for by the Welsh Assembly through PAVO on an annual basis, and there are strict requirements to recruit 44 volunteers a year, including a number of young volunteers.

Volunteering with us

Apart from a few paid hours of cleaning and caretaking,  Knighton and District Community Centre got where it is today through its fantastically committed and enthusiastic volunteers.   Firstly, there’s the management committee, some of whom are at the community centre daily, with sleeves rolled up, doing all sorts of everyday jobs like setting up tables and chairs for events and hirings, weeding the flower and herb beds, doing minor repairs and so on.  That’s in addition, of course, to the less visible but incredibly time-consuming tasks of dealing with bills, maintaining the financial accounts, running the bar, keeping track of maintenance, health and safety, doing press releases, and the mammoth job of identifying funding sources and completing the applications for such funding…  the list is dauntingly long.

In addition, there are small bands of dedicated volunteers who staff the market and library cafes, and help to run Flicks in the Sticks screenings and live music events.  They are a happy bunch and without them, there would be no community centre. If YOU would like to help out we’d love to hear from you.  Just send a message via the contact page of this website.

We are currently particularly interested in hearing from anyone who has sound or stage lighting engineer experience to help develop our live music events programme.

Make Friends

Volunteering is a great way to meet nice, like-minded people, especially if you're new to the area. We're a friendly bunch and are always welcoming of newcomers and veterans alike.

Feel Good

It's rewarding to spend time helping good causes. Not only will you receive gratitude, but you can go home at the end of the day knowing you did your part to improve the community.

Get Ripped

Sure, you could get shredded at the gym or playing sports... but wouldn't you prefer to get a sweat on AND help a good cause? There are plenty of opportunities that offer a bit of physical exertion!

Make Money

Not only do you get to spend your time making friends, feeling good and getting ripped... some opportunities even offer paid hours, so you can walk away with a few bob too!
