    I Want to Volunteer




We are currently in the process of migrating to a new platform which means not all of the volunteer opportunities will be visible online. Please contact us on 01305 269214 or email [email protected] to discuss the full range of volunteer opportunities available. Thank you for your patience at this time.

How to find out more about volunteer vacancies?

There are many ways to find information about volunteering and get involved. Many people will just contact local branches of organisations and ask if they can help. However, other people may be unsure what they want to do and if you are new to the area you probably don't know all the local organisations that use volunteers. 

To register as a volunteer on our volunteering website, please click the registration button above. Our staff at the Volunteer Centre are happy to help you with registering. Once you have registered, you can express your interest in roles that are suitable for you.
