Brixton Volunteer

Join our amazing community in the heart of South London


Brixton Community Volunteers
c. 0.5 days a week, with accommodation at heavily subsidised rent

Are you looking for an interesting and exciting way to live out your faith? Are you passionate about peacemaking and social justice? Are you interested in living in South London as part of a christian community? Do you want to join in a story of peacemaking that’s been developing for over 50 years and counting?

Sound like you – or someone you know?

CHIPS has an exciting volunteer opportunity to join our project in Brixton, South London. For the past three years a committed team of volunteers have been exploring peacemaking in Brixton, living in the Loughborough Estate community hosting meals, summer parties, doing youth work – and supporting families when they ask for help.

We are seeking volunteers to move into the CHIPS flats (with subsidised rent) to join in with the life of team and the wider community. One room is available now and another from September 2018.

We are looking for an enthusiastic volunteer ideally with interest in or experience of one or all of the following:

  • youth work in a structured and unstructured setting;
  • community work and engagement with local community groups, including churches and schools;
  • community living, offering hospitality, and group prayer.

You will have a key role to play in shaping the project and helping to facilitate peace in South London and will join a supportive team, with plenty of opportunities for training and development.

Rent is £500 per month inc. bills

There are two rooms in neighbouring flats available, one with two young professionals and one with a married couple and their young son.

Team members are expected to support their living costs with a part time job (c. 4.5 days a week – to enable the flexibility to participate in community projects).

You will have the opportunity to design a volunteer role that works for you and your interests.

CHIPS is committed to safeguarding the children and young people we work with, so the appointment is subject to a DBS check.

Please get in touch with Angharad ( if you have any questions and are interested in getting involved with CHIPS.
