Volunteering Opportunities

Whitby's Food Hub

Pantry

The Pantry:

The Pantry is a membership-based food club that enable people to access food at a small fraction of its usual supermarket price. The Intact Centre’s weekly fee is £5 for which members will be able to access approximately £25.00 worth of food, improving household food security and freeing up more money for other essential household costs such as rent and utilities. So far, over 200 members have signed up.

The Cafe:

Open every day serving drinks, snacks and hot meals. Volunteers help prepare meals and serve customers. 

Thrifty Kitchen:

Thrifty Kitchen teaches basic cookery skills to adults who want to learn, with no fancy equipment or expensive ingredients required. It’s also a great opportunity to eat and social together. .  We believe everyone can learn new skills with the right help, and we welcome everyone to get involved with cooking, no matter what their experience. The sessions are led by an experienced team of cooking and nutrition volunteers

Meet and great everyone who comes into the centre and answer phones. Lots of interaction and helping people find the right person to talk to or be referred to. 

 

Digital Inclusion

One-to-one lessons

We provide one-to-one support to help anyone struggling with computers, digital devices or the internet. We use a range of free online resources and specialist expertise to plan and deliver a free learning programme tailored to each individual person.

This service is delivered primarily by volunteer ‘Digital Champions’ who will move at the learner’s pace with the end goal being independence.

It’s estimated that 9 million people in the UK cannot use the internet without help, and 7 million have no access to the internet at all.

Nature Reserve

Nature Reserve

Dobcroft is a 5 acre nature reserve managed by Intact which is maintained by fabulous volunteer led Friends of Dobcroft and Land Management Team. It is a protected due to the rare Great Crested Newt which inhabits this natural haven in the heart of the Ingol community.

In 2018-2019 Intact was fortunate enough to secure some funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) to help start the ‘Discovering Dobcroft’ project. This proved to be very successful, enabling us to recruit and train volunteers to look after our bees, and the land, which consists of ponds, woodland, and grasslands. Volunteers also built bird boxes, bat boxes and benches, learnt willow weaving and took part in a whole range of activities, such as our Heritage Open Day, bat walks, talks and photography. Surveys were also carried out in which showed that the site is home to a variety of fauna. More species of flowers and grasses could be present in the seed bank. Small mammals and invertebrates have also been recorded. There are nearly 400 identified species now recorded.
