Volunteer

The Remakery is being brought to life by a large community of volunteers through what we are calling “community self-build”.

This means that the majority of work on site is being done by volunteers, under skilled supervision. As is all the project development work done behind the scenes. This keeps costs low and means the Remakery is truly being made by the community it will serve. It also means we need a constant stream of volunteers to help with construction to make the Remakery happen.

If you’d like to volunteer please fill in this form, or contact Kathe Jacob on 07796 685 241 / kathe19@blueyonder.co.uk. If you have specialist skills to offer please email our construction manager Pete Boyce, pete@remakery.org. You can also simply come along to the site and meet some of the team, any day from Mon-Sat - see directions here, and more details of the weekly timings below.

Why volunteer?

Volunteering on site

Recent volunteers at the Remakery construction site commented:

Great to get away from my desk and do something physical. Also really happy to learn about what the Remakery will be in future, and have a hand in building it… I hope to be able to come back and dedicate a couple of hours a week - this is volunteering with concrete results.”

Bustin down a wall was great therapy… Nice to meet the team!”

One of our volunteers and founder members, Mark, made this short film about the power of volunteering at the Remakery!
