Volunteer Centre Greenwich has run a supported volunteering project for over ten years, supporting people with a range of needs including, disability, mental health issues, long term unemployment and barriers in social housing.

Our Supported Volunteering Project provides bespoke volunteering opportunities accessed with the support of a trained mentor. This is coupled with a qualification in an accredited Level 1 Employability Skills Course or Customer Services. A trained mentor is matched with the person we are supporting and provides tailored support dependant on the needs of the mentee. All mentors have a Level 2 accredited qualification in Mentoring and VCG holds Mentoring and Befriending Provider Status demonstrating the standards that the project adheres to.

The project enhances people’s employment prospects by increasing their confidence, skills and experience. Mentors work with their mentees to support them in identifying and working towards their agreed goals and move towards their next step in their employment journey.
