St Luke’s Community Centre relies on volunteers to enable us to run the wide range of activities and services that we do.

If you are interested in volunteering, improving your English language or developing skills for your CV, please get in touch now! Please note priority will be given to residents living in South Islington. Our Volunteering Form is available here.

There are a range of volunteering opportunities available, from reception and administrative help, to catering support and facilities maintenance. By volunteering people are contributing to their community, meeting new people and gaining experience.

Please be aware that you may be asked to undergo a disclosure check if your role comes into contact with children and vulnerable adults. Please click on the link below to refer to the St Luke’s Volunteer Policy.

Read about our volunteer Luisa

Luisa is one of our volunteers, giving up her time every Thursday to offer manicures for just £5 to over 55s members. Luisa kindly donates all this money to St Luke’s, which is vital to help fund future services and activities. The thought of sitting at home after retirement didn’t suit Luisa, and with extensive professional experience in manicuring, she wanted to do something she loved that benefited other people. She has now been coming to St Luke’s for about fifteen years, and loves the companionship. Over that time Luisa has raised thousands of pounds towards activities in the club room.

Luisa is an active member of St Luke’s, and is a regular at our art classes, sewing classes and lunch club. In her spare time she also sings in a local choir, so life is never quiet!
