Volunteer today and make a difference!

Volunteering can increase your chances of paid employment.  A good volunteering role can help to build confidence - especially for people who have not worked before or may have been out of work for some time.

Volunteer is also fun, and a great way to give something back to your community. 

How can I find out about volunteering opportunities?

Banes Volunteer Services - Connecting people through volunteering

Our team provide a vital service in promoting volunteering opportunities and identifying suitable candidates for local charities and community organisations; helping people from all walks of life to make a difference to their lives and the lives of others.

So if you are an individual or a business interested in volunteering, or a local organisation looking for volunteers, then you have come to the right place! We hope you find what you are looking for on our site.

The Council manages a number of volunteering roles across a number of different service areas and advertises these vacancies and other local opportunities on its Jobs and Careers pages of the website.

If you would like some advice or to find out more about the volunteering opportunities available, simply visit the Volunteer Centre’s website or view the volunteering opportunities advertised on the Council's website.

The Council organises a series of annual Community Team Challenge days.  If you are a voluntary or community group that might benefit from a team of helpers, contact Sara Dixon on 01225 396594 or e-mail
