Buckinghamshire Volunteer Matching Service

Registration is now open to sign up with the Buckinghamshire Volunteer Matching Service (run by Community Impact Bucks in partnership with Buckinghamshire Council and The Clare Foundation) to help support High Wycombe communities. If you are available to volunteer in High Wycombe, and you are over 18, we would love to hear from you. Please sign up using the form here Somebody from the Volunteer Matching Service will then be in contact with you when a potentially suitable role is available.

Unfortunately, we are unable to accept registrations from people looking to volunteer in other areas at this time as we already have a number of registered volunteers from other areas of the county.

You can still get in contact directly with your local community response groups.
