You can drop in to ask about local volunteering roles.
Usually the team will have a chat with you to find out:
- your interests
- what you've done in the past
- what you're doing at the moment
- what you'd like to do or have a go at
You might not have had experience of volunteering before. The team will talk to you about what volunteering means and what you might expect.
Different volunteering roles have different expectations. For example some roles like a weekly commitment and other roles ask for particular skills or qualities which are important to doing the role safely. These requirements are usually explained in a short description about the volunteering role. If you need more details about the role, we can help find out extra information from the organisation.
You can have help with recruiting the right volunteers for your role.
We can help with:
- creating volunteer roles
- advice on volunteering policies and processes
- connecting organisations together
- sharing best practice and good ideas
