  • About the Volunteer Role
    We are three Occupational Therapy Masters students from Leeds Beckett University. We are currently on placement at Clare House in Huddersfield, which is a homeless hostel and rehabilitation facility run by Home Group. Clare House supports people to gain life skills, access services and get their life back on track, enabling them to acquire permanent accommodation when they leave. For our placement, we are setting up a gardening project, restoring the allotment at Clare House for customers there to use and engage in gardening activities to aid their rehabilitation and increase their mental wellbeing. This project will be of great benefit to Clare House and its clients, giving them the opportunity to gain new gardening skills, as well as learning to cook the produce grown in the allotment. We are looking to recruit a volunteer with a good knowledge of gardening and running an allotment, to assist a couple of days a week at Clare House, working in the allotment, helping with the planning and running of groups alongside the support staff at Clare House.
