Skills for Life Volunteer Programme at Spruce Carpets

Elderpark Housing is working in partnership with Spruce Carpets to help develop skills and provide work experience opportunities for our tenants.

Spruce Carpet’s “Skills for Life” volunteer programme provides work experience across a range of activities in their warehouse and showroom, as well as accompanying staff on off-site working. Experience is not required as training will be given which includes health and safety, manual handling, forklift practical experience, rug binding, basic carpet fitting, IT, employability and much more. They can also offer accredited and onsite training which is tailored to meet your needs.

Volunteering is a great way to upskill yourself and help you find permanent employment. 

Personal Protection Equipment is provided, as is lunch and travel expenses.

More information can be found on their website at or go along to one of their information sessions to find out more.
