The Winch aims to make our activities as accessible, sociable and rewarding for our volunteers as possible. That means you can drop in and out of our tasks when you have some time spare, or commit on a regular basis. And it means we will always try to create opportunities which are fun, and based on human interaction.

Our volunteers play a valuable part in supporting the services we offer. All volunteers work under the supervision of experienced staff.

If you are interested in volunteering or learning more about ways to get involved, please contact the library manager: email the Library or Page Victor: email Volunteers at The Winch.
