I Want to Volunteer

Make a difference. Make things happen. Get involved.

The Buckinghamshire Volunteer Matching Service matches registered volunteers to roles where they are most needed in the county. Since Spring 2020, more than 1,900 volunteers have been matched to a range of roles with charities, voluntary groups, local authorities and NHS Services.

You can also browse through a wide range of general volunteer roles on the online database Do-it Life and find out more about general volunteer roles suitable for young people under 18 here. If you have a specialist skill to offer or would like to be a trustee,  have a look at the latest opportunities listed on the online database Reach Volunteering.
