Carrie Hirst

Community Champions Manager

I have been fortunate enough that my passion for volunteering has taken me around the world; having worked on long term youth development projects in India and Zambia, as well as managing a multi-cultural team in Uganda.

I joined the Volunteer Centre in February 2015 to coordinate the corporate engagement programme, working with local businesses, sourcing and facilitating relevant volunteering opportunities for their employees to engage in.

I’m now delighted to be managing the centre’s Community Champions programme where I train and support volunteers to deliver sessions and events surrounding health and wellbeing in the Notting Dale ward.

I may be biased, but we’re a lovely team and can make a great cup of tea! If you’re wanting to find out more about volunteering or any of our programmes please do pop in and say hello, we usually have biscuits …
