Commitment

  • You can sign up to as few or as many shifts as you like! There are lots of one-off activities or more regular activities too, taking place all throughout 2020. Shifts vary in length but are usually up to four hours. Shifts will be located all over the Borough of Brent.
  • All volunteers will need to attend an Orientation Session to be fully inducted into being a Brent 2020 Volunteer.

What else do I need to know?

  • Getting involved is easy:

    1. Sign up. If you either live, work or study in Brent and you’re 18 or over, you’re in the right place. Fill in a short online sign-up form to get started. Or if you prefer, you can pick up a paper copy of the form in your local library.

    2. Meet up. We’ll invite you to have a chat with us, so we can find out more about you and you can ask us lots of questions too.

    3. Orientation. Attend a volunteer orientation where you’ll get all the low-down on the plans for 2020 and learn all the ways you can make a difference.

    4. Dive in. Start jumping into the volunteer opportunities that excite you most. There are lots of different events and activities, so there’s something for everyone.

    5. High five. You’re now a certified volunteer, which makes you an amazing part of the Brent 2020 cultural community.
