Volunteer Centre Thornbury
Who we are ...
We are the volunteer development agency for Thornbury and district. Our overall aim is to promote, support and develop volunteering and provide a service which matches volunteers with organisations which need voluntary help. We provide training, advice and support.
More about what we do.
Become a volunteer ...
We can tell you about local, national and international volunteering opportunities, which may include both regular work and one-off projects. We can find you appropriate training courses and offer support and advice throughout your volunteer placement.
Your next step to volunteering.
Find a volunteer ...
We help organisations find volunteers for recurring and one-off projects, work with them to identify and develop new volunteering opportunities, advise them on good practice when working with volunteers, and can provide training, subject to funding.
More information for organisations.
Encourage staff ...
Give employees the opportunity to volunteer. Your support may be time off for individual volunteering, or in a programme you develop, such as an ongoing arrangement with a community partner. We have helped local employers establish links with partners and can do the same for you.
