I Want to Volunteer

Make a difference. Make things happen. Get involved.

In Spring 2020, more than 1,800 people signed up as volunteers to help our Buckinghamshire communities respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Buckinghamshire Volunteer Matching Service, which is run by Community Impact Bucks in partnership with Buckinghamshire Council and The Clare Foundation, places these volunteers with groups and organisations which are in need of help. If you would like to volunteer during this time, find out more and register on the Buckinghamshire Volunteer Matching Service webpage.

The latest general volunteer roles with Do-it can be found below.  Please note, many charities and community groups may have had to suspend their services, or close them completely in the face of COVID-19, and may not have had the opportunity to update their roles on Do-it. It is recommended that you contact an organisation directly before applying on Do-it.  You can browse all Do-it roles on the Do-it website.

Do you have a specialist skill to offer, or want to be a trustee?  Look at the latest opportunities listed below with Reach Volunteering. You can search for all Reach roles on the Reach Volunteering website.
