The Lenton Centre is in the heart of Lenton, Nottingham, and is ultimately owned by the people for the people. It aims to be a hub of activity for the entire local community and offers a variety of health, well-being, educational and social activities and facilities. However none of this would be possible without the help of kind, well-motivated volunteers to help run and improve the centre for the community of Lenton.
1. To make a difference to the local community
2. To gain new skills and valuable work experience
3. To be a valuable part of a team working towards a better future
4. To meet new people and make new friends
