Who we are ...
We are the volunteer development agency for Thornbury and district. Our overall aim is to promote, support and develop volunteering and provide a service which matches volunteers with organisations which need voluntary help. We provide training, advice and support. More about us.
If you’re thinking of volunteering ...
We can tell you about local, national and international volunteering opportunities, which may include both regular work and one-off projects. We can find you appropriate training courses and offer support and advice throughout your volunteer placement. The next step for volunteers.
If you’re looking for volunteers ...
We help organisations find volunteers for recurring and one-off projects, work with them to identify and develop new volunteering opportunities, advise them on good practice when working with volunteers, and can provide training, subject to funding. More information for organisations.
We believe that everyone has the right to volunteer without experiencing unfair discrimination and that volunteering is a matter of free choice; that volunteering is a valuable, integral part of society and that volunteers deserve support and recognition; that volunteering should be open to as wide a cross section of the community as possible.
