Our Social Space mission is to create space for social connections within local communities.  

There are lots of way you can get involved with Our Social Space – whether you’re an individual, a group, or an organisation, we’d love to hear from you!

Are you looking to get more involved with your local community?

Our Social Space is building a strong team of active volunteers who can give some of their free time, skills and experience each week to support and run the activities available in our space.

We aim to ensure that the volunteering experience is valuable to the development of the individual and equally of benefit to the work of Our Social Space.

A non-profit charitable organisation we rely on volunteers.  We are looking for enthusiastic volunteers to help with our mission to create space for social connections in local communities, reducing loneliness and social isolation – a great opportunity to get involved, play an active part in your community and contribute to positive social change.

Volunteers should be over 18 years old and enjoy working in a team.

We are currently offering volunteering opportunities in the following areas:

  • Group exercise Leaders (walks, cycles, runs)
  • Workshop Mentors/Skilled Makers (woodworking, bicycle repair, arts & craft work etc.)
  • Gardening
  • Fundraisers

If you have some free time to invest in your community and would like t become a part of Our Social Space team, please complete the Expression of Interest form or contact us on 07428 453334

Have an idea for a fundraising event?

From cake sales to raffles, coffee morning to sponsored walks/cycles and everything in between, there are so many to raise money to help create space for social connections.

Not only will you be raising funds to help us continue to create space for social connections and prevent isolation, you’ll also be bringing people together to talk about something we all share:  social health.  We will be here to help you with top tips to make the most of your event.

If you’re a bit stuck on what to do, we’ve got plenty of ideas to get you started.

By giving your time, skills, experience or making a donation you’ll be playing your part in creating a space to benefit your community.

Whatever the value of the donation you would like to give, it is very much appreciated.

Your donation will be used to help run our activities and sustain Our Social Space into the future!

We welcome donations to our donation boxes at our space, or you can donate online here

We are delighted to have the opportunity to work in partnership with charitable trusts and foundations.  They play a vital role in helping us to achieve our mission of creating space for social connections within local communities to reduce social isolation and loneliness.

We are always interested in hearing about trust funds that we could be eligible to apply to in order to continue our valuable. If you know of, or perhaps represent a trust fund that could help us, we would love to hear from you.
