With housing at the heart of Giroscope’s work, it is the provision of high quality volunteer and work placement opportunities for a wide range of people that enables the heart to beat.

We provide hands on experience in most of the building trades, CSCS and H&S training and qualification, key training in numeracy, literacy and computer skills, as well as giving people help with accessing external training and finding employment.

Many of our volunteers also go on to live in a Giroscope home – often one that they themselves have helped to renovate. Giroscope provides a supportive work environment to meet the requirements of all abilities and needs.

Our volunteers come to us from a wide range of backgrounds and with a wide range of differing aspirations. These include ex-offenders, refugees, long term unemployed, school work experience, people with learning difficulties, university graduates, college students and many more.
