Why Volunteer

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

*If you are looking to volunteer in response to the COVID-19 situation, you can find information here.*

It can leave you feeling good, knowing you have made a difference to someone else.

There are a huge number of volunteering roles available right now in Bucks. Explore the types of volunteering on offer and find out about what makes volunteering so rewarding from just a few of the people who have given their time and talent to Bucks’ organisations.
