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 the Volunteer Matching Service can help you find that perfect role. To find out more and register either click on the button at the bottom of this page, or go to the section on the Buckinghamshire Volunteer Matching Service below.

The latest general volunteer roles with Do-it can be found below.  Many charities and community groups may have had to adapt, suspend or close their services during the pandemic, 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.

Buckinghamshire Volunteer Matching Service

The Buckinghamshire Volunteer Matching Service was set up at the end of March 2020 to match volunteers with groups and organisations to help support communities during the pandemic. If you would like to find out more and to register as a volunteer, go to our Buckinghamshire Volunteer Matching Service webpage.
