Projects
Take a look at the projects we offer and find something to get involved in!
Volunteering
We have various community projects for you to get involved with, including our flagship tutoring project, Schools Plus and our amazing community garden at Murray Edwards, Cambridge Edible Garden.
These projects offer a fantastic opportunity to build confidence, develop teamwork skills, boost leadership abilities, practice public speaking and so much more whilst making a last impact on communities across Cambridge.
See our What's on page to apply to any of these project or to find out more.
  • Schools Plus is our flagship tutoring project running across three schools in Cambridge. Volunteers gain valuable skills while helping school students from disadvantaged backgrounds to achieve their full potential.
  • The Cambridge Edible Garden is built on land given by Murray Edwards college, just on the edge of their Storey Way car-park. It's an exciting collaboration between community gardeners, a dementia support charity, Cambridge University, and of course students! Don't worry, no prior experience necessary!
  • Thyme to Cook is a family cookery club running on Tuesdays with the help of volunteers. The project is aimed at families with young children and gives them the chance to cook low-budget, healthy meals in a friendly and supportive environment.
