Volunteering with the council
Volunteering is about doing something to benefits others, not for financial gain.
Volunteering can take many different forms such as:
- helping with activities in children centres
- helping train people to use computers
- supporting youth clubs
- helping to run events
- befriending others
Volunteering has many benefits, such as:
- gaining new experience
- enhancing your skills
- adding something new to your CV
- building confidence
- making new friends
- feeling good about helping others
Once you find a suitable role you should complete and send us an application form.
The volunteer manager will contact you to arrange an informal chat, either in person or by phone.
Other local volunteering opportunities are advertised through the Volunteer Essex website.
