Community Engagement


Work for Norwood
Community Volunteering
 

Community Engagement

Community Engagement is an important part of our work. It allows local people to engage with Norwood through a variety of cultural or practical, short-term and focused projects. All the projects help increase people’s understanding of Norwood and the people we support.

Our Community Engagement initiatives include forming links with:

  • Local cultural groups
  • Local faith groups
  • Local youth groups
  • Employers
  • Schools and colleges

We are constantly seeking to strengthen our links with our local communities. We are keen to hear from you if you (or a group you work with) would like to get involved in our work.

 
 

Committees and YN

Norwood benefits significantly from the contributions of the people who sit on our fundraising and advisory committees. These individuals provide advice and support regarding our policy, future planning and fundraising activities. YN (for people aged 21-35yrs) is one example of this type of work.

 
 

Employer Supported Volunteering

We work with a number of local employers, providing team building days for their staff. Recent Employer Supported Volunteering initiatives have included:

  • Gardening projects
  • Mural painting
  • Supporting our car wash scheme

The companies involved report that the activities we offer provide a perfect day out for their team. We are always looking for new, innovative partnerships with local organisations for one-off events or ongoing opportunities.

Youth Engagement

We offer volunteering experiences to young people, working closely with schools and local youth groups. These can be taster sessions or programmes of activity. We will work with you to develop opportunities that meet your needs while helping us. We understand that young people have busy lives and might just want to dip a toe in the water of voluntary activity. To find out more about our calendar of events or to talk to us about developing something bespoke for your needs please get in touch.
