The work we do relies heavily on volunteers - an army of fantastic generous people donating their skills, energy and expertise in all kinds of ways. All of our projects and services use volunteers in some capacity at both of our Lifeskills Centre located in Leicester and Derby.

Placements with Twenty Twenty would be of particular interest to students interested in a career in Social Work, care, Teaching, Educational Psychology, Forensic Psychology, the police, Youth Work or Special education. The roles would be guided somewhat by individual criteria and interests but duties are likely to include:

 - Assisting teachers in classroom settings (with anywhere from 3-20 students)

- Admin, marking and other paperwork bits that are involved in any teaching or youth work job!

- Getting involved with organising events with us, from trips, to open days, and fundraising opportunities. 

- One-to-one classroom support for those with specific needs such as Autism, dyslexia, or other issues that could be helped by one-to-one support.


Depending on your skills and preferences, by the end of the year previous placement students have run their own groups, sessions and one-to-ones, both in schools and in our Lifeskills Centres. We have centres in Leicester and Derby, so there would be opportunity to be based at either of the centres. A lot of our placement assistants carry on volunteering at least one day a week in their own time.


If you'd like to discuss the possibility of volunteering for us in one of the ways above or in another capacity, please email your enquiry or download our application and GDPR form to [email protected], specifying which centre you would like to volunteer at.
