Volunteering Opportunities for Adults


We have a range of volunteering opportunities available all year round – please see details below.

Hackney Quest relies on its amazing team of volunteers giving up their time to support our young people, families and the community. Volunteering is a wonderful opportunity to use your time to support your local community, gain skills, share skills, and of course make new friends. 


As part of the application process we will require an Enhanced DBS Check, but all paperwork can be done after our initial meeting/informal interview. So, if you think you would be interested in volunteering please contact Marisa for more information via 020 8533 5480 or This email address is being protected from spambots.
