Become a volunteer

Coastline encourages volunteering in all areas of the organisation.


We recognise and appreciate the positive contribution volunteers make to Coastline, and that volunteering gives opportunities for individuals to achieve their own personal development goals.

Coastline Construct

Coastline Housing has launched a project to help its customers and the wider community get jobs within the local construction industry.


We are working with our partner agencies and construction companies to give local people the opportunity to gain qualifications and work on a ‘live’ site as part of an eight-week training programme. The project has been part-funded by the Positive People Building Better Opportunities Big Lottery Fund.


Coastline Construct provides both classroom and practical training, covering the various trades including masonry, carpentry, plastering, groundworks, cleaning, admin and health and safety.


Email backtowork@coastlinehousing.co.uk to let us know you are interested. We'll soon be confirmng a new site for 2020.



We are offering free training opportunities to all Coastline Customers. These can help you develop and build skills for your home or work life.


There are a wide variety of opportunities available which range from structured work placements to one-off short courses.You can also  complete courses online to fit in around your schedule. 


During the current coronavirus outbreak our face-to-face training opportunities are currently on hold until later in the year. However, you can still let us know you are interested in training so we can add you to our waiting list.


Online courses remain available and can be completed in your home. All you need is an email address, so if you would like to complete some online training please email getinvolved@coastlinehousing.co.uk.

Coastline works with many partners to get you the right training for your needs. If you are claiming Job Seekers Allowance, Universal Credit or any other means tested benefit the training is often free.
