Volunteering

Volunteers are at the heart of charities and community groups, making a difference to the lives of people across Buckinghamshire. 

If you are a group of charity, we want to help you put in place the best volunteering experience for your volunteers – from support to recruit, manage and retain volunteers to helping you develop a volunteering strategy.
