Dan's Den would love to welcome You...!

Dan’s Den has a few key employed members of staff. However, we could not deliver our unique service and Christchurches vision without our fantastically generous volunteers; from both the wider community and Christchurch itself. Exciting stuff!

Some of our amazing volunteers;                  


We need various types of volunteers

  • General volunteers: tasks include reception, welcoming, assisting customers, general tidying up and keeping things in order
  • Café volunteers: tasks include serving customers, making drinks/meals, kitchen cleaning, food preparation
  • Activity volunteers: tasks include helping with extra activities to be organized through the week e.g. Storytelling, arts, and crafts.
  • Party Assistants: support play, serve party food ( the best food when you're under 5!), sing "Happy Birthday" clearing tables, all whilst offering excellent customer service.

Our volunteers kindly donate their time in anything from an hour to a whole morning or afternoon. We are particularly busy from 9.30 until 1.30 but if you would prefer something a little less lively maybe an hour in the afternoon! Dan’s Den will be opening Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday (all 9.30 – 17.00) and Saturday (9.30 – 16.00).

Full training and support will be given. Volunteers will gain valuable work and social skills, in a warm, friendly, fun, enjoyable and highly rewarding setting.

So  - if you are up for the challenge and are willing and able to help Dan’s Den fulfill its potential (or would like further details) please get in touch. Just complete the brief form below (or available from the Christchurch foyer) and we’ll do the rest! 

Thank you!

Just some of our amazing team Christmas 2015.
