Would you like to be a part of a vibrant social enterprise, working with wonderful, friendly people and to feel like you make a difference?

“As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands — one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.” - Audrey Hepburn

We offer a range of volunteering opportunities at Jennyruth Workshops. These include enabling and supporting our workers in:

  • office skills and educational courses

  • painting wooden gifts and products in the paintshop

  • cutting out wooden items and assembling habitat boxes in the scroll saw/assembly room

  • work experience and voluntary work outside of Jennyruth Workshops

  • talks and running stalls at crafts fairs and shows

We also have volunteers who help with fundraising events

We truly value the important contribution our volunteers make at Jennyruth Workshops and we endeavour to ensure their time is as enjoyable and rewarding as possible. We need volunteers to assist in the many and varied day-to-day activities essential to the continued success of Jennyruth Workshops. No experience is required but you must enjoy working as part of a team, supporting others and have patience. A good sense of humour helps too!

Our principles are that everyone who works here, our colleagues who have learning disabilities, volunteers and paid members of staff, are equally valued. What one person cannot do, another is able to do and we all work alongside each other to design products, pack and sell our goods as well as take part in learning and training opportunities.

If you are interested in volunteering with us please contact Shelley on 01765 606620 or email 

We look forward to meeting you.
