The ClementJames Centre is a dynamic charity where you can make a real difference in people’s lives, whether you give your time, money or both.

There’s more than one way to help:

Interview Skills Days

We regularly run volunteering days for businesses. During our Interview  Skills Days corporate volunteers work closely together with a group of employment clients, taking part in various challenges to boost our clients’ confidence, and giving one-to-one advice on interview and presentation skills. We have found that volunteers enjoy getting to know our clients and sharing their experience with them, and that clients feel more confident and prepared for future interviews.

Numeracy and Literacy Support

Support adults or children with numeracy and/or literacy on a one-to-one basis.

Minimum commitment is one hour per week for the duration of an academic term. Monday – Friday between 10am – 6pm.

Academic Support Tutoring

Work with a group of either primary (7-11 year olds) or secondary students (11-18 year olds) in our after-school homework club to support them with their academic work.

Weekly session for one term:

Primary sessions: Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays 3.30 – 5pm

Secondary sessions: Mondays & Wednesdays 4 – 5.30pm and Fridays 3.30 – 5pm

Adult Mentoring

Provide one-to-one non-judgmental support and guidance to our employment clients.

Twice monthly sessions with your mentee over three months. Meetings are taking place remotely during the Covid-19 pandemic. Find out more on our mentoring page. Email phoebe@clementjames.org to sign up as a mentor.

End of July to end of August, Monday – Friday from 10am – 4pm. Join us for as many days as you would like.

Reception Cover

Every now and then we require keen volunteers who can cover our busy reception.
