Students and volunteers

Gain practical experience and skills at our community-based organisation

University student placements 

We have been supporting families for over 30 years and have a wealth of expertise to share! Students will receive real-world training from our caring team and experience work from a community and family-centred perspective. We offer placements of 4 weeks or more.

Get in touch if you’d like to organise a placement at Plumtree.

Volunteer with us 

Plumtree is a busy organisation, and our wonderful volunteers assist us in a variety of ways. Some attend weekly, while others come whenever their own busy lives allow. Whatever your capacity, we would love to hear from you! 

Volunteers are offered induction and support from a member of the team. Let us know if you have a particular interest or skill and want to talk about volunteering. 

Volunteers must be 18 years or older. You will need a verifiable Working With Children Registration number.

Volunteers have played an important role in:

  • Assisting staff in the preschool and in playgroups
  • Contributing their personal and professional skills to help us improve our office and IT systems, to communicate our message more effectively
  • Making resources for our staff to use with children and families.

Get in touch if you’d like to volunteer at Plumtree.
