GET INVLOVED – We’d love to meet you

Richmond Community Learning Centre depends on volunteers for the effective running of the centre. We seek community-minded volunteers who care about people from all ages, backgrounds and life circumstances. If this is you and you have the skills and interest to contribute to RCLC according to our mission and purpose then contact us.

Currently, we’re looking for volunteers for specific roles – but if you’d like to offer help in another area, be sure to give us a call or  complete our volunteer Interest Form so that we can keep you on file for any future opportunities that may arise throughout the year

Committee of Management members: vacancies on our COM are available for people to join this community-focused team that oversees the Operations for both The Cubby House and Burnley Backyard.  For further information or to chat, please contact us.

The Cubby House volunteer team: If you are the parent of a youngster, interested or studying early learning, looking for babysitting work, or simply a local keen to help out at the centre please get in touch with us. 

Burnley Backyard volunteer team:  This new facility will need your help.  Gardening, maintenance, event planning, fundraising, operations, marketing, you name it – we have a place for you.

Burnley Backyard is a partnership with the Richmond Community Garden Group who are managing the rental plots.  You don’t have to rent a plot to get your hands dirty though.  There will also be plenty of opportunities to plant, sow and harvest in the communal garden spaces, so if you would like more information about gardening activities at the Backyard, contact us.
