While I have not used your service frequently, I think it is invaluable and really appreciate it when needed.
At the initial interview, the Volunteer Centre adviser was great, providing information about all the possible opportunities she thought would match my interests. My details were passed to my chosen organisation and, although I was advised that it might take a few days before they would call me, the referral process exceeded my expectations as the manager called me almost the same day and we got a date arranged to meet up right away. I am delighted with my new volunteering role.
I cannot thank you enough for making our trip such a lovely occasion and look forward to using your services again very soon.
My volunteer experience enabled me to practice my Microsoft Office skills and increased my confidence, which helped me to learn new skills and return to work. I appreciated being consulted on how to assist with change and enjoyed working within a very upbeat fantastic office team.
Thank you so much for your assistance, I do not know how I would manage without your support
It was a pleasure to meet the volunteer recruitment team to talk through suitable opportunities. Together, we narrowed it down to roles offered by five organisations and I was given the chance to visit each before making a decision. This is a super service.

As a community organisation, we value the amazing range of skills offered by volunteers recruited through the Volunteer Centre’s bespoke service. Together they promote our ethos, support the wellbeing of our clients and muck-in at events!
I’ve been driving for the Volunteer Centre for 16 years and absolutely love it. As a driver you meet some really good characters and nice people. I’m helping them and they are helping me as I have to be doing something with my time otherwise I get restless and stressed out at home.
I really enjoy helping others and, as I get to know clients and gain a greater perspective of their life and challenges, I also gain a greater appreciation of my own life.
