We are looking for new Buddy Volunteers to support our community volunteering days at Sutton Community Farm. Our next training session will be Saturday 22nd April 2017, from 10am to 3pm. We will holding another condensed session on the afternoon of Wednesday 17th May, from 2pm for our regular volunteers and anyone who would like to become a buddy.

The aim of our Buddy Volunteering Programme is to help us maintain a supportive, welcoming and safe space at the farm. As a Buddy, you will play an important role in helping to support fellow volunteers and coordinate tasks. This programme is for volunteers who are interested in supporting volunteers who have mental health problems and/or learning disabilities, or those who may just need a little extra support. Buddies help run practical activities and are available to volunteers who need extra guidance or help with settling in and getting to know the farm. Ideally, Buddies will commit to 1-2 volunteeing sessions per month.

If you'd like to attend please go to  contact Harley at [email protected] and fill out this application form.
