Want to Volunteer at WAC?
WAC was developed by the community in Waterloo and remains heavily dependent on volunteers.
- Reception / information desk. Another person to do half a day a week either 9-1 or 1-5 Monday to Friday. Local people are particularly useful here because of the local knowledge.
- An hour a week to help the Finance worker with data entry. Accuracy important. Any time between 10 and 3 on Monday, Tuesday, Weds, Thursday.
- Push a person out of their house from time to time, just because getting out makes people feel better, or because they have somewhere they would like to go.
- Sometimes people need to be pushed to WAC, then they can spend time engaged in activities here . Tuesdays or Thursdays are the most likely days for this to be needed.
- Sewing skills? A volunteers are needed for Tuesday afternoons to help people with dressmaking. This will be in a room with other handicrafts going on. Volunteers have been found already for card making, knitting and crocheting. Any other skills around people would be willing to share.
- Do you have arthritic hands? If not could you help someone who does by sewing on buttons and other essential repairs. Tuesday afternoons in WAC.
We also need a few more wheelchairs in good condition please.
Donations? WAC no longer receives any public funding for its work with older people nor, except for a small grant towards of the accommodation costs for the Legal Advice Service, for the advice work. Donations are therefore extremely important – running costs have to be met. WAC is registered to claim back gift aid.

Waterloo Action Centre has published another pamphlet WAC Pamphlet - AUTUMN 2013 which is distributed to retired people in the local area. As before, it will have information about the wide range of activities that take place here at WAC and how you can get involved with the local community and lots more. If you would like a copy, please collect from WAC Reception.
Following consultation about the future location for Waterloo Library please note that the WAC option has NOT been agreed by WAC or current users as being compatible with activities in WAC nor have there been discussions which make it clear whether WAC would remain financially viable. However this is consultation and do please go and see for yourself and complete the brief questionnaire
Every day people in the UK go hungry for reasons ranging from redundancy to receiving an unexpected bill on a low income. Trussell Trust Foodbanks provide a minimum of three days emergency food and support to people experiencing crisis in the UK.
We collect non perishable food for local people in crisis on behalf of Oasis' Waterloo Foodbank. Pick up a Shopping List from Reception, where you can leave your donations in the box. If it's more convenient you can also leave them at Oasis' Hub Café, 1a Kennington Road.
All donations gratefully received.
