Types of Volunteering

Volunteering roles come in all shapes and sizes. Whether you’re looking to experience new things or use your existing skills, meet new people or give just a small amount of time from home there will be a role perfect for you.

There are a huge number of volunteering roles available right now in Bucks. Just as there is no such thing as a typical charity or community group, volunteering roles are just as unique, requiring anything from general voluntary help to skills-based support.

You don’t need special skills or loads of time to get involved. You don’t need to be a certain age or commit to a specific length of time. You don’t even need to do it on your own.

Volunteering can offer you the chance to discover a whole new side to life. It can help you to experience new things and meet different people or give you the opportunity to share your skills and ignite your career.

What we can guarantee is that it will leave you feeling good, knowing you have made a difference to someone else.
