Get involved

We welcome and actively encourage members of the community helping us deliver our services in the best possible way. Can you become a ‘friend of sweda’?

As a friend of sweda you can make a real difference to individuals within your local community. We need people who can give time, share skills, act as mentors or through regular or one-off giving. We are not able to accept ‘Gift Aid’ contributions at the moment, but will be looking to qualify for this in the future.

There are a number of ways to get involved including:

This list is not exhaustive. If you feel you have something to offer get in touch.

NB: For volunteering, delivery of workshops and mentoring as well as some other activity a Criminal Records Bureau check will be required.

If you want to get involved or want to know more or have an informal chat, phone 0121 525 2558 and ask to speak / have a meeting with Davinder, Jackie or email
