Adults & Volunteering

We offer a range of volunteer and wellbeing opportunities that enable people to spend time in a green space, meet new people, navigate mental health difficulties or life challenges, learn new skills or get work experience.

Due to Covid-19, we've had to limit the number of people participating in our groups to ensure everyone's safety, specially our most vulnerable service users. During this time we're only accepting new enquiries from people that are isolated, have learning difficulties or experiencing poor mental health. Have a look at the open activities below and if you have questions contact us on getinvolved@swcityfarm.co.uk or apply by filling out our Volunteering Interest Form.

We hope to open general volunteer opportunities again over the following months.

Current activities include:
