Xenia runs completely by volunteer time, donations and a free venue. Our team plans and runs all workshops, builds partnerships with other local community organisations for referrals of learners, and organises events for participants. There are five dedicated volunteers currently doing this work, and we would love for you to join us!
Childcare Volunteers 
An important part of Xenia is that women are able to bring their children along. We are looking for additional support to look after participants’ children from someone with experience and a current valid DBS.
Commitment: At least two Saturdays per month
Experience: Some childcare experience necessary (care of your own children is OK!). DBS check required. 
Communications Volunteer 
We are looking for someone to join our Organising Team as a lead on communications, including social media, blog-writing, newsletters and website upkeep.
Commitment: Three hours per week (flexible, independent work), plus two hours per month to attend Organising Team meetings
Experience: Some communications experience preferred, but dedication and interest in Xenia is highest priority!
Fundraising Volunteer 
We are looking for someone to join our Organising Team to support fundraising applications, as we are in the process of applying for funds to further develop the work we do.
Commitment: Three hours per week (flexible, independent work), plus two hours per month to attend Organising Team meetings
Experience: Some fundraising or other writing experience required, but dedication and interest in Xenia is highest priority!
If you are interested in any of these roles, please e-mail theodora@xenia.org.uk!
The key values of the Organising Team are feminism, non-competitive sharing of learning, and horizontal collaborative leadership. We are a very young organisation and continue to make it all up as we go along, which means there is a lot of flexibility and opportunity for autonomy and creative input into how Xenia works. To be part of our team, be prepared to take initiative and receive open-hearted support in equal measure!
