Queen’s Park Community Council was born from residents’ efforts to create positive change in the area. It is through their continued enthusiasm for change, whether as Councillors or as Volunteers that the Community Council makes a difference.
We understand volunteering as a ‘give and give’ relationship and are committed to ensuring that volunteers feel appreciated for their valued work and can develop their personal, social and professional needs. So, whether you wish to support improvements across the Community, learn new skills, gain experience, or meet new people, our volunteering programme offers flexibility and support to ensure you can get the most out of the experience.
As volunteers with QPCC, you have a right to:
• Equal treatment as outlined in our equal opportunities policy
• Adequate information, training, support and supervision
• Health and safety information to maximise your safety and welfare
• Reimbursement of reasonable, agreed on out-of-pocket expenses
• Be valued by everyone within QPCC
• Be treated sympathetically and fairly if faced with problems relating to volunteer conduct or complaints.
• Be consulted if changes are introduced that will affect your role.
Residents who sign up to become Community Volunteers will receive emails wherever opportunities arise and can get involved in various activities on a ad hoc basis through out the year. Whether it’s supporting community events or the Garden Clean-up project, putting up posters, delivering the Queen’s Park Voice, helping out in the QPCC Office or attending working group meetings whenever you have the time!
Working Group Volunteers
QPCC’s Working Groups meet semi-regularly to recommend, deliver and evaluate local events and services. These groups consist of Councillors and other volunteers coming together to raise concerns and put forward ideas to address issues or provide for the needs of the Community.
