Wealden Volunteering: the Uckfield Volunteer Centre rebrand

CommunityAd share an update from Wealden Volunteering, who you may have known as Uckfield Volunteer Centre, who continue to serve the community through their recent rebrand.


By the time you are reading this article, your thoughts will have turned to spring and expectations of warmer weather. It will be good if we can have some nice dry weather, as I think we’ve probably had enough rain recently to last us for a very long time.

Spring heralds new life through flowers, trees, new born lambs, calves and other animals and maybe new beginnings for you. As you emerge from the darkness of winter and shake off the gloom, it would be good to think about new challenges, specifically those that involve volunteering.

Volunteering is a wonderful way to connect with other people who have similar interests and to learn new skills. There are so many opportunities available to help others and really make a difference to people who are maybe struggling with loneliness, disabilities or other issues. There are also outdoor roles that need to be filled, so if you enjoy gardening or keeping the local area looking nice then you will be very welcome. The range of opportunities is very diverse, and we will do our best to find you something fulfilling and exciting if you decide to take the first step and register your interest. You can do this on our website under the Be a Volunteer tab. Just fill in the application form and let us do the rest. If you would prefer, you could come into the office at 79, High Street and we can help you complete the form. Please give this some thought. I guarantee you won’t regret it.

We have, in fact, just rebranded as Wealden Volunteering with a very successful launch on March 28th. Our remit now covers the whole of the Wealden area, with pop up hubs coming to a town near you. It’s a very exciting time for us and will greatly benefit the area. Have a look at our website, wealdenvolunteering.org.uk for more information and also keep an eye out for our posts on social media.

Don’t forget that we also offer many services such as scanning, photocopying and laminating up to A3, alongside holding a wealth of local information that includes rail and bus timetables. We can also replace batteries for NHS hearing aids. We are still collecting your defunct technology which is collected by a company who refurbish the equipment and then pass it onto charities for underprivileged families and individuals.

Do pop in if you are passing and meet the team. We are a friendly bunch and would love to meet you.
