Volunteer this Christmas
Sometimes, one of the simplest things that you can give is the gift of time. As 2018 draws to a close some of our organisations find themselves winding down for the festive season, whilst for others it is gearing up to be their busiest time of year.
Charities that support vulnerable, isolated, elderly or frail people can often find themselves inundated during the winter months and can really appreciate an extra pair of hands. If you have been thinking about volunteering over the festive season and have a few hours to spare why not get in touch with us or follow this link to see what’s available in your area and use the search word Christmas.
Still looking? Local churches, care homes and community centres can also be on the lookout for December volunteers, why not call in to find out or for more ideas or contact us at email@example.com or 01425 482773 or come to one of our volunteering drop ins listed here.

At the Volunteer Centre, we promote and support volunteering.
The Volunteer Centre recruits potential volunteers from all sections of the community and seeks to place them with voluntary organisations who are actively looking for volunteers to assist with their work.
The Volunteer Centre also offers advice, information and training to voluntary groups using or considering using volunteers. We also promote the work of organisations in the New Forest and their ever increasing need for more volunteers.
Working alongside voluntary organisations we promote good practice in working with volunteers, advocate the rights and responsibilities of volunteers and are available to discuss any topics relating to volunteering, covering such issues as insurance, expenses and volunteer policies.
