Get Involved
Burghley Road needs you! Be a part of your local community.
Make friends. Give back. Gain invaluable experience.
Be a Volunteer

Volunteering can be a rewarding experience. Volunteers are what keeps us going! All our volunteers learn new skills, boost their CVs, and make a lasting impact on the centre and its users. We have a flexible schedule with three key positions to fill each day: we need one person to open the centre (around 10:30), one to cook (lunch is served at 12:00) and one person to close the centre (depending on a day, but usually around 13:30).  

Training is offered for all roles. You choose your day and role to work and the best part is,  you can bring your children with you! On the days you volunteer, we give you free entrance and lunch for both you and your child(ren).


For more information:

  • Please drop in the centre and speak to one of our day volunteers who take your contact details

  • Or speak to one of our volunteer's manager  for more information

  • Or email us at  

Donate Funds or Supplies
As a charity play space entirely run by volunteers, we are reliant on donations and the support of the local community. As part of bigger plans there are some simple things we urgently need to improve the space.

Ways to donate

You can make a donation through Everyclick using the following link:


If you would like to make a donation by cheque, please make it payable to Burghley Road Under 5s Community Centre and send it to Burghley Road Under 5s Community Centre, 23 1/2 Burghley Road, London N8 0QG. You can accompany your cheque with a Gift Aid Declaration form so that the charity can claim an additional 20% from HMRC at no extra cost to you. You can also donate while at the centre using our card reader. 


Donating toys and goods

We have a lot of toys already but there are some specific things we do need:

  • toy pushchairs
  • baby boy and girl dolls, preferably with clothes
  • dressing up clothes for dolls and children
  • toy shopping basket with handles and shopping trolley
  • outdoor climbing frame
  • outdoor slide
  • toy garages
  • farm sets and farmhouse
  • kitchen play food/pots/pans/cups etc.
  • hard wearing toy kitchen
  • soft play mat/play gym for babies
  • babysit me up ring/playlist
  • ride-on vehicles

As a public space, we can only accept donations that are clean and in good working order, with no missing or broken parts. Please email Hikaru (trustee at Burghley Road) on if you have anything on our list to donate.

Thank you for your support!
