Volunteering allows you to feel a sense of purpose or achievement, to gain new skills and experience, to socialise, make friends and feel part of a community.
We value the time given, experience and knowledge shared and, most importantly, how the help given results in a positive outcome for all people involved. We have something for everyone, no matter where they live or how much time they have to spare.
One of the better-known benefits of volunteering is the impact on the community. Unpaid volunteers are often the glue that holds a community together. Volunteering allows you to connect to your community and make it a better place. Even helping out with the smallest tasks can make a real difference to the lives of people, animals, and organisations in need.
Depending on the role, our volunteers are provided with training and development which includes First Aid, Safeguarding, Tool Management, Health and Safety and Health and Hygiene.
All volunteers who work with children or vulnerable adults are DBS checked.
Please read our Volunteer Handbook for more information on how we support you as a volunteer.
Litter Watch as a team of committed volunteers who work with us on a regular basis who are individuals with learning or mental health difficulties. We hold monthly meetings with these volunteers which involve reviewing and planning activities. We encourage our volunteers to actively join us in decision making as they have wealth of local knowledge.
We can accommodate business volunteering opportunities which are a great way to team build and give something back to your community. Some of our business supporters include: Serco, Vodafone, Network Rail, McDonald's, Warburton's, The AA, ASDA
Volunteering as a business can support Corporate Social Responsibility enabling your colleagues to gain new skills in a different environment.
We've also worked with The NCS Challenge (young people who volunteer over the summer), Volunteer Matters (encourage and signpost businesses to us), Waterside Care (working on the local canals).
