Meet some of our Volunteers

We wouldn’t be able to deliver our work to rebuild lives across the borough if it wasn’t for the vital support of our volunteers.

From sharing skills at the Brick Works, supporting our Crisis Intervention Service at the Brick Project to helping us to fundraise, there are plenty of ways you can get involved.

The Brick is always looking for new volunteers to bring different skills and qualities into the charity; no matter your circumstances and background are there is a volunteer role to suit you!
