What impact will this have?

  • Little Village is here to make it as easy as possible for local families to support one another during times of need. We are powered by a wonderful network of volunteers.
  • We collect great quality donations of clothes, toys and kit for babies and children up to the age of 5, and we gift these donations on to local families who are dealing with really challenging circumstances – homelessness, unemployment, low wages and domestic violence.
  • Our dream is that no child in the capital grows up without essential items of clothing, toys and equipment. You can help us realise this dream by helping sort and organise donations, checking quality and getting them ready to go out to families who need them.

Commitment

  • We have Stock Sorting Sessions at Little Village Southwark every Tuesday evening in term time.
  • The session starts at 1945 and finishes at 2145. You can commit to weekly, fortnightly, monthly sessions or ad hoc dates.

What else do I need to know?

  • At Little Village, our volunteers are our lifeblood. We simply wouldn’t exist without the time and commitment they give to our work.
  • Volunteering at Little Village is an empowering, social experience that gives you the opportunity to make a real and tangible difference to families living in your local community.
  • Volunteering needs to work with the ebb and flow of life, and Little Village offers all sorts of ways of volunteering, from very ad hoc and informal, to a bigger regular commitment.

Background checks

  • No background checks are required
