Travel: Balham station. Du Cane Court bus stop.

What will I be doing?

  • It costs around £150 to support a family; we will support over 2,500 families this year.
  • We are part funded by Big Lottery and a number of other foundations. However, at least 40% of our funding comes from the local community.
  • We are looking to build a team of enthusiastic people who can help us reach into the local community to increase the funds coming in to support our vital work.
  • We are looking for people to help in our activities in the following areas:
    - supporting people doing sporting events for us
    - developing local business support
    - encouraging local individual giving
  • The volunteer will work in part of a supportive team, with full support of the local Site Director, and the national Fundraising Manager.

What impact will this have?

  • 40% of children in London are growing up in poverty. Little Village supports many of these children each year and seeks to make it easy for local families to support one another, and challenge the impacts of child poverty.
  • We have supported more families, year to date, in 2019 than in the whole of 2018. We want to continue to support more and more families, and need the funds to be able to do so.
  • We have an active and engaged local community who are ready and willing to support us. We need to create activities that build on this already successful base.

  • We understand that volunteering needs to fit with the ebb and flow of family life.
