Volunteering Options

We rely on the work of volunteers. If you feel keen to explore what you could do to support us in this way, please get in touch.

We are always looking for people who have a talent for fundraising and marketing, or would like to get involved in our mentoring programme.

Perhaps you would like to host a fundraising event or take on a charity run for us? Maybe you have a great idea for fundraising that we’ve not even thought of?

For information or to share ideas, please contact us here.

“I have been involved in helping young people in various roles over the years, so offering my time to Fledge was a great way to make a difference. Initially, I started by doing administration, and taking the minutes at the Trustee meetings, but recently I have been visiting one of the houses and facilitating a couple of art sessions for the residents. It’s been great to get to know them and listen to their hopes and dreams for the future. Without a doubt it is a brilliant use of my time and energy and I would recommend it to anyone.”

Exciting New Trustee Opportunities

Fledge is looking for some like-minded, motivated and passionate people with fundraising and PR experience to join our Trustee board. This will involve using your experience in fundraising or PR to develop the charity and help it move forwards in its mission.

The role: Fledge has a passionate but small Trustee board and are looking to expand it both in size and expertise. Ideally Trustees would be local to Eastleigh Borough for this role as we meet for meetings and working groups around once a month.

Fledge is growing and to sustain our business and service provision we need develop new projects, employ more staff and develop our existing project. This all requires PR support and funding. Fledge is looking towards a new five-year business strategy and requires skilled individuals to have an active role in implementing it.

What impact the opportunity will have: Fledge is at a crucial point in its growth. We are still a young charity and so the Board of Trustees, and any new trustees, have a key role to play in the development and operation of this very exciting venture.

What’s in it for the volunteer? Being a trustee with Fledge brings many benefits. We are learning together as we move forward and that experience is challenging and thrilling. You will also witness the positive impact of your actions and decisions on the wider outworking of Fledge and the young people we support. The Fledge team are a very friendly bunch and welcome all new faces with excitement.

Training can be provided around specific need areas relating to the particular trustee skills.

Time commitment: Either in or out of office hours

Fledge has evening trustee meetings around once a month. Trustees would be expected to complete any actions from these meetings before the next date.
