Volunteering

 

Start something new - become a volunteer coordinator

Do you like making things happen? Are you organised with an eye for detail? Want to turn your passion into action?

Become a volunteer coordinator with one of the largest volunteering organisations in Britain and start a new activity group in your local community.

You can do it on your own, with a friend or as part of a team and it can be anything from a dining club, arts & crafts or yoga class to just about anything else you can think of. It really is up to you and your unique talents.

Helping your talent shine

As a volunteer coordinator, you’ll spend your time leading a club or activity group which could include:

  • Recruiting and training volunteers
  • Delivering your planned activity safely and legally
  • Managing money and fundraising
  • Co-ordinating with other activities in the local area.

If you haven't tackled anything quite like this before, don't worry. We have an experienced team of people ready to guide you through the process with plenty of support and a minimum of 'red tape'.

You’ll also be provided with a handbook and central support phone-line to help you along the way. Then, when your club or activity is in full swing, we’ll be there to help you in any way we can.

Ultimately, you’ll have the satisfaction of knowing that you’re making amazing things happen for people in your community – while making the most of your talent at the same time.

By working with us, you can help to change lives for the better.
