The Phoenix Community Centre was created by voluntary effort, and volunteers still play a vital part in all areas of its work. The Centre is a busy place and we are always eager to welcome new volunteers to help us.

There are many different ways to become involved, as you can see from the examples below.

If you’re interested in helping in any of these areas, or if you have have other skills or contributions which you think you could usefully volunteer to the Centre please get in touch.


Our Board of Trustees, and other management and organising committees, are all run by elected or co-opted volunteers.

Cafe & Bar

Our Cafe needs volunteers to help serve drinks, snacks and food to users of the Centre.


Fundraising is crucial for us to renew and improve our facilities. Help is always needed with festivals, fairs, sales and raffles.


The management group is responsible for all the internal and external upkeep of the Centre. Volunteers with decorating and DIY skills are always most welcome!

Admin & Enquiries

We need volunteers to help with admin tasks, and also to help members of the public with enquiries when they visit the Centre.
