Knowsley Community & Voluntary Services
Leadership. Ingenuity. Sector Social Growth
Volunteering is about giving your time to do something useful without getting paid (although you usually receive expenses). Volunteering might be about giving something back to the community, being a good neighbour, or getting involved in new activities. You can make a difference, whether it’s something you do once or on a regular basis.
Roles are very diverse and open to everyone and can include working in an office, befriending old people, helping out in youth clubs and children’s centres, undertaking research, working in a charity shop, gardening, painting, in fact, almost anything! There are lots of roles available at any one time to suit most interests with new opportunities coming on line regularly.
This website will be able to support you to search through opportunities and put you in touch with organisations and causes you are interested in.
