Community Gateway at Greenfields means creating an environment in which our residents can make a real difference in their communities.
Giving something back to the community
If you would like to learn new skills, increase your confidence, meet new people and give something back, volunteer for Greenfields. Please fill out the form below.
We recognise the immense benefits that volunteers bring and the bridges that they build between us and the local community. In return, we hope to give our volunteers an opportunity to use their skills in a different environment and to undertake new experiences.
Please take a look at our short video to find out about experience of volunteering for Greenfields.
