We offer appointments for potential volunteers to come and chat to one of our  friendly advisors in a confidential space about volunteering and its free!

Appointments are available on Tuesdays between 9.00am – 2.00pm, please call 01636 679539.

We will ask you a variety of questions such as: How much time you want to give? What do you hope to gain from volunteering? What skills would you like to use?  We will hopefully find suitable roles that are to your liking and once you have identified a role you are interested in, you can contact the organisation in your own time.

What types of roles are available?

There are many types of roles for you to get involved in, including: conservation, befriending, sports coach, play support, youth work, driving and many, many,  more.

How soon can you start volunteering?

It all depends on the recruitment process of the organisation and the type of role you have chosen.  You will usually have to complete a simple application form, provide 2 referees and depending on the role, you may need a DBS check (previously CRB) which may take 4-6 weeks.
