Franco from Davies court informed me of my last min transfer to Bowdens court and he was helpful in the whole process ensuring i was welcomed and informed :) this review will be for my time at Bowden Court; the work hours are respected (i worked 3h on weekdays and 5h on sundays), food was provided and the managers were nice :) they could improve on being more communicative with my exact tasks as there was a little confusion but it got resolved easily. overall i recommend this volunteering experience!

I am happy to reply on behalf of my colleagues in Bowden Court, where Kelly was sent due to a particular circumstance that we had at Davies.
Kelly has worked mainly in the kitchen, she is very appreciated by her colleagues and her supervisors. She shows a very positive attitude, is very friendly and kind, and she is more than welcome to apply for another volunteering experience with us.



The room is great, we have 20 pounds to spend per week at the market (individual value), the hours are respected, the work is peaceful and the team is wonderful. One of the best volunteers I've ever done.

Foi minha primeira experiência com inter. voluntário e não poderia ter sido melhor, fui recebida com carinho e respeito, as horas foram respeitas, o trabalho é fácil mas em grande quantidade, tiveram muita paciência com meu inglês nível 0, que agora é nível 1 haha Os quartos de voluntários são ótimos, tem uma cozinha bem equipada e ainda é disponibilizado um valor por semana para comprar mantimentos. A localização é otima, ao lado da estação Westferry, o que facilita conhecer varios lugares. Agradeço especialmente ao Jorge, Bruno e Pedro, que foram maravilhosos e toda equipe pelo suporte 🙏

Was an amazing experience. Thanks to this volunteering, I was abele to discover and stay in London for long time. I worked only for the morning, so I had all my afternoons and week ends free to visit and spend time in London. I met a lot of volunteers from others countries and everybody was sooo nice. The location is perfect close to canary wharf which is definitely my favorite place. thank you for everything!!! :)

The volunteering experience at Davies Court was so great. Everyone is really friendly and willing to help. The tasks are easy to learn quickly. You share accommodation with other volunteers and you can use the communal kitchen. The location is fantastic, you can get on the bus or DLR and be in the centre of London in minutes. As my first experience, I would recommend it to anyone.
