What happens when I visit the volunteer centre?
We will have an informal chat with our volunteer advisors about what you think you might like to do. We can find a role to meet your lifestyle and interests. There is a simple registration form we’ll ask you to fill in. We’ll spend some time browsing through various available opportunities. All the information we have available on the opportunities you’re interested in will be printed out for you. Most people take this away to have a look through, and choose 2-3 organisations to make contact with. Each organisation has its own method of taking on volunteers, which we can talk through with you. You will not need to make any decisions about your volunteer role on this visit. Appointments are available out of these times and a confidential meeting room is available. More questions?
