Who we are
We are the volunteer development agency for Thornbury and district. We promote, support and develop volunteering and provide a service which matches volunteers with organisations that need voluntary help. We provide training, advice and support.
Be a volunteer
We can tell you about local, national and international volunteering opportunities, which may include both regular and one-off placements. We can find you appropriate training courses and offer support and advice throughout your volunteer experience.
Find a volunteer
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.
Give employees the opportunity to volunteer. This may be time off for individual volunteering, or in a programme you develop, such as an ongoing arrangement with a community partner. We have helped local employers establish such links and can do the same for you.
