Thornbury Volunteer Centre
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.
Students reap benefits of volunteering
Around 50 sixth formers who took part in the Castle School’s volunteering programme Castle in the Community, or who acted as peer mentors for their fellow classmates, were rewarded for their contribution at a ceremony at the school on Wednesday 6 May.
