Blackburn with Darwen - Community Centres

Greenfield Community Centre - Cleaning Support Volunteer

Service / Role Overview:

Volunteering in community centres is extremely rewarding as you will meet people from all walks of life and will be able to make a positive difference to their lives.

The community centre volunteers are extremely passionate about their centre and its activities and we are looking for more passionate people to help.

Supported by the Blackburn with Darwen Community Assets Team, community centres are run entirely by volunteers and each volunteer has a unique set of skills which are important in the overall management of the centre. Volunteers play a crucial part in helping to ensure that community centres remain open for residents to access facilities locally.

All roles will provide valuable experience and opportunities to access training.

As a cleaning support assistant you will ensure that the building is kept clean and tidy at all times for the benefit of the users of the community centre.
