Ham United Group

We care about where we live!


Ham United Group (HUG) is a volunteer run Community Interest Company (CIC) aiming to improve the environment and the quality of life for the people in Ham and Petersham. We support projects and groups that help make our community more sustainable. 

Current volunteering opportunities

Social Media and Marketing Volunteer

We are looking for a volunteer to help us with marketing and social media. The main purpose of the role is to promote our events and our groups' activities. You will keep our social media channels up to date and design flyers and posters. Ideally, you will have an interest in helping to organise and attend our events. The time commitment is approximately an hour a week (home based and on your own time).


If you would like to help shape what HUG does and how we contribute to a more sustainable and cohesive community, consider joining our Board of Directors. In particular, we are looking for people with skills or an interest in managing events, marketing and/or social media, or volunteer recruitment. In addition, we are committed to building a more diverse team and you don't need previous experience. So do get in touch even if you think you don't fit the typical profile of a Director or Trustee.

Please email us at info@hamunitedgroup.org.uk if you are interested in joining our lovely team.
