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.

More on employer-supported volunteering.

The Castle School operates an annual volunteering scheme with its sixth formers. These were pictured at the Sheiling School in 2013.
Volunteers can choose from a wide range of opportunities, of which face painting at the Wild Place in north Bristol is just one example.
We help local firms establish and operate schemes to help employees volunteer. Here two members of staff from Essilor are helping in the garden at Turnberrie’s.
