Volunteering is about giving your time to a good cause. You don’t get paid, but you do get the chance to use your talents, develop new skills, and experience the pleasure that comes from making a real difference to other people’s lives, as well as your own.
Anyone. Whatever your age, background or work experience, you will have a skill someone needs. No matter how busy you are, there will be something you can do. It can be trickier to find volunteer roles if you are under 16, but not impossible. Just ask us.
Anything. (Almost.) More than 100 different volunteer roles are available in Thornbury and its surrounding area. Everything from driving to gardening, befriending to administration, fundraising to shop work. There’s something for everyone.
We will do our best to ensure that we signpost you towards organisations with appropriate insurance cover and safeguarding procedures to ensure that your volunteering experience is happy and healthy
There are many ways to get in touch with the Volunteer Centre and find an opportunity that inspires you.
You can contact us by phone or email or drop in to the office for a face-to-face meeting where you can talk through your thoughts and needs with a Volunteer Co-ordinator.
We are to be charity of the month during May at the Swan Inn. Many events are planned — details to follow.
Join us at our Spring Sale on Saturday 27 April at the Thornbury Methodist Church Hall.
