What is the commitment?

Most of the volunteering opportunities that we have at YMCA West London are longer term volunteering with the need for a regular commitment. However this regular commitment might vary from a few hours once a month, to a full day once a week. There is flexibility to work around your availability, and to find an opportunity that you are really passionate about.
