Soulscape’s biggest project of the year is coming around again.
With Mind the Gap, we will support thousands of Year 6 students across
Wokingham and Crowthorne as they make the big transition to secondary school.
We rely on a huge team of volunteers to make this happen. Please join us this year! No experience necessary – just a friendly face, a listening ear, and a heart that cares about young people.

WHO CAN VOLUNTEER?
Anybody! Here are some ideas:
