What we do

Volunteer Centres – the one stop shop for volunteering

Volunteer Centres provide a wide range of services for both volunteers and volunteer involving organisations and here are just some of the many services offered.

For volunteers we can offer a range of exciting and varied volunteering opportunities in your local area with advice and information to help you choose the one most suitable for you.  Our current opportunities are displayed on the Do-it website.  If you would prefer to see the opportunities listed by type of activity and organisation, please download our  Volunteering Opportunities Booklet 2017

 

For volunteer involving organisations we can freely advertise volunteering opportunities online and in our local area along with providing information, advice and support on good practice.
