At the Volunteer Bureau, our aim is to help people to become involved in voluntary activities. We match people who want to work voluntarily with those who need them.
Voluntary work is work done for no payment other than expenses, if paid by the organisation. But, at the Volunteer Bureau, we like to encourage organisations, who find volunteers through us, to treat their volunteers well.
Voluntary organisations in Crewe and Nantwich include social groups, black and asian community groups, campaign groups, environmental organisations, counseling and advice groups, local and national charities.
The work that volunteers are required for is extremely varied and can be with people, animals, on environmental projects, or to undertake administrative tasks. Working on an executive committee as treasurer, chair, secretary or just a member. In a shop, as a team or one to one. There is so much to choose from, that's why we're here to help people find it!
Volunteers work the hours that suit them. The only thing that is required of all volunteers is that they are reliable, that they are regular and that they get involved.
At the Bureau, we will invite you in for a chat, to find out the sort of work you want to do. If you want to get involved with an activity we will need two references from non family members.
Opportunities exist to work with the young, the old and those in between, people with physical or learning difficulties or people who are homeless, victims of crime, prisoners, ex-offenders, bereaved people, or the families or carers of any of these people. There is environmental work for those who enjoy working in the open; driving work, telephone work, catering, working in shops or offices. There are many different types of work in many different places. Most activities will give you training for the tasks a volunteer may not have full experience in and free courses are available for registered volunteers at South Cheshire College. Any of the opportunities are there to be tried out. You are the volunteer; if you do not enjoy one type of work, you can always come back and we will find you another.
