A new volunteer service started in July 2018 for Yate, Chipping Sodbury and locality. This service is mobile and focused on reaching out into the community. The volunteer co-ordinator Jenni, attends local events and community locations to speak with people who are interested in volunteering.
Contact Alex to chat about roles available or apply over the phone for a role.
She 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. Alex 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.
