What we can offer

We can publicise and promote your volunteer vacancies, handle all applications, and send appropriate individuals’ details to you once they have expressed an interest in a role with your organisation.

We offer advice on working with volunteers from our Volunteering Co-ordinator. We can also provide training for your volunteers and specialist training for volunteer managers/coordinators, including an Introduction to Managing Volunteers course; and Volunteers and the Law. We also run the Volunteer Co-ordinators’ Network for the district, which provides networking and skill-sharing opportunities.

  • Screening volunteers
