Knit for Peace is a wonderful opportunity to meet others and help out by sharing your craft skills!


We are always looking for experienced, enthusiastic and outgoing knitters to join our team of volunteers to support existing charity knitting groups in schools, community groups and prisons. You also have to be patient, friendly and reliable, even when it takes someone a whole hour to complete their first stitch!

Being a knitting group leader will involve being responsible for one or more groups, regularly attending the groups, helping the participants improve their knitting skills, ensuring a welcoming atmosphere for newcomers and liaising with whoever is responsible for the space which hosts the group. Being in a group means that you can send your donations in together, or one of you could deliver them to London. Download the recording sheet and send that in with your group’s name.

volunteer2Knit for Peace can also help you to set up new groups.

For a chat about volunteering, call 020 7794 9835 or email

We look forward to hearing from you!
