In 2022/2023 we are taking part in WREN. This is a program open to our drop-in volunteers.
- WREN FOR GATHER VOLUNTEERS -
The WREN (Women Rising Enabling Neighbourhoods) grant programme offers grassroots organisations providing support to women, the opportunity to train them as community champions. It will provide free training and qualifications to upskill volunteers so they can offer professional advice around things like housing, debt, substance misuse and domestic abuse to women in their community.
VOLUNTEER YOUR TIME
This is one of the simplest ways to help out our cause. We believe the best way for our initiatives to be successful is for the community to actively get involved. This is an easy and efficient way of contributing to the great work we do at Gather. Get in touch with any questions about how you can volunteer your time today.
This could be at our Women's Drop-in

PARTNER WITH US
We can't do it without you!
We need people to come alongside our ministry - become an ambassador for Gather in your community (e.g. church, school, sports team or work)
Having an “open door” is fundamental to the ethos of Gather as a Christian faith-based ministry, we work alongside and welcome those of other faiths or none without compromising our commitment to our Christian witness. Therefore, in order to maintain this ethos it is essential that certain roles are filled by committed Christians* - e.g. core team, team leaders, prayer team.
We do not discriminate but treat each person as an individual with dignity and respect regardless of race, age, gender, sexual orientation, social background, criminal history or religious beliefs.
All the roles within Gather are voluntary.
Thank you again for your interest in volunteering with Gather. We look forward to hearing from you.
