Frequently Asked Questions
What is volunteering?
Volunteering is taking the time to do something useful for the community without getting paid. It can be a great way to build confidence, find new hobbies or interests, meet new people, and gain new skills and experience!
How do I become a volunteer?
Our Voluntary & Community Team helps people find volunteering opportunities and has lots of information on local organisations needing your support – call 01978 312556 or email: [email protected]
How long before I can start?
Sometimes you may not be able to volunteer immediately. There may be a group start date, or you may need to wait for references and checks to be completed. If you want to volunteer with vulnerable people or children, organisations will carry out a check with the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS).
However, if you have a conviction this will not automatically exclude you from volunteering. Our Voluntary & Community Team are able to give personal advice to potential volunteers.
