All our opportunities can be adjusted to meet individual needs so regardless if the barriers you think they may be, talk to us and see just how you can be involved.

Some people volunteer for one off events or activities, others with a little more time do something every week.

    Having recently moved into the village I would like to know more about volunteering opportunities that are available in Castle Donington. I have some free time to put to good use and would love to meet and make some new friends whilst giving something back to the community. Any advice would be much appreciated. Thank you.

    Hi Claire,
    Please pop into the office and have a chat with Helen. She can describe the various volunteering opportunities that are available, help you get signed up as a volunteer and helping other people in the community.
