Vauxhall City Farm is a charity running recreational, educational and therapeutic programmes for children, young people and disadvantaged people in the setting of an urban farm in the centre of London.
We are funded by grants and donations and we are always eager to meet quality volunteer interns who are looking to gain experience of working in the third sector.
This is an ideal opportunity to become involved in one of the hidden treasures of London. Covering 1.5 acres of land, Vauxhall City Farm is home to over 60 animals and provides a chance for Londoners to meet farm animals face to face. It provides opportunities, education and training for people in the local community and beyond.
As a small charitable organisation that aspires to grow, this is an excellent opportunity for someone to benefit from personal and professional development through experience gained by working within a tightly focussed team.
