Community Impact Bucks Volunteer Opportunities

Local Ambassador

We are seeking an additional Local Ambassador to promote CIB’s services and volunteering in a defined geographical area, to complement our current team who cover Great Missenden, Marlow and High Wycombe.

We are particularly interested to hear from you if you are based in Aylesbury, Amersham or South Bucks, but if the role interests you please contact us anyway if you are based in another area of Buckinghamshire (excluding Milton Keynes).

As a Local Ambassador, you will raise awareness of CIB by voluntary and community groups within as defined geographical area and encourage potential volunteers to get involved.

The role will include liaising with local groups and potential sources of volunteers which will involve a mix of visiting external groups and organisations, volunteering from home and visiting CIB offices in Monks Risborough.
Hours and times can be flexible to suit your needs as well as ours, but we are ideally looking for someone who can commit to at least three hours a week.

If you possess excellent communication and organisation skills, are good at making new contacts and ideally have a good existing network in your own local area, this volunteering opportunity may suit you.

Group Gardening

Voluntary Opportunity

Under our Group Gardening scheme which runs throughout Bucks, volunteers work as a team to carry out various gardening projects in clients’ gardens, supervised by the Community Impact Bucks gardening team leader. We always need more gardening volunteers to do valuable work and, drawing on each other’s knowledge and experience, there is always a great sense of camaraderie.

Both novice and experienced gardeners are welcome.

The scheme offers a great opportunity to learn new skills, be more physically active, make new friends and have fun whilst making a big difference to people’s lives.

Pub lunch club co-ordinator

Voluntary Opportunity

We have three vacancies for a Pub Lunch Club Coordinator to work with our county coordinator to support Pub Lunch Clubs in their communities.

The Pub Lunch Club scheme is a way of helping people maintain a level of social contact in rural areas and is aimed at the over fifties, especially those who are becoming socially isolated. The project also helps village pubs which provide a great atmosphere for the lunches.

Your main tasks would include being host on the day of the lunch, maintaining a record of the names and contact details of attendees and liaising with the pub.

We are looking for someone who can give half a day a month on the day of the pub lunch as well as dealing with occasional phone calls. The role does not need any specific qualifications and would suit someone who has an outgoing personality and is a good organiser and communicator. We currently have vacancies in Wendover, Longwick and Burnham but would be interested to hear from people all across Bucks who might be interested in the role as we are continually expanding the areas we cover.
