Volunteering and parental involvement


The Alliance in Lewisham has a long established volunteer programme called Me and My Community. We have many volunteers supporting staff across all of our settings undertaking various roles, from childcare through to administration. As part of our recruitment process, we arrange for volunteers to attend our volunteer training course, request 2 references and undertake a DBS check. Once complete, we place the volunteer in a setting with a mentor/manager.

Parental Involvement

Want to influence services in your local area? Are you a parent, grandparent or other family member or a user of our services? Are you interested in doing volunteer research in the community to help shape and evaluate local services? Are you interested in joining our ‘Parents Connect’ Group? 

Me and My Community

Train to be a volunteer at this free 5-week course, where you can develop skills and confidence in volunteering in your local community in a Children’s Centre, Pre-school or other local service. Free crèche available.

If you are interested in volunteering please call into any centre and ask for information or contact
