Volunteer taster days

Volunteer sessions are a great way of discovering more about the work of Thrive.

Learn about the work we do in London and the different volunteer opportunities. After a tour of the gardens you will meet other volunteers where you can learn first-hand about volunteering at Thrive.

If you'd like to attend a volunteer taster session check our events page or come on a garden tour please register first and email the team on

Client Support Volunteer

Working directly with our clients, you’d be helping our therapist and work on one of our garden programmes. Please be aware that most of our volunteer roles require a DBS check which we will organise.

Corporate volunteering

Leave the world of work for a rewarding and fun day in our gardens!

We have been running our extremely popular Corporate volunteering days together with our experienced horticultural therapists for a number of years. Our aim is to provide our corporate volunteers with a fun and rewarding day in the fresh air, with the opportunity to work hands-on in one of our beautiful gardens. With our personal and friendly approach, you would learn more about Thrive and see with your own eyes the great work that we do with a wide range of clients. During our Corporate volunteering days, you would get to experience a great team-building opportunity, whilst supporting your local charity and making a positive difference to the lives of people living with disabilities or ill health. Your team would also get to explore the many benefits of gardening and its effects on wellbeing and mental health.

“I found the planting very relaxing and therapeutic. It was a wonderful thing to do for people who work in a stressful office environment.“ -Cathy, Blackrock

The standard cost at Thrive Battersea is £750 per day for up to 20 people, which is currently our maximum number. We can host Corporate volunteering days usually on Wednesdays and Fridays.
