Volunteering: east midlands

Posted by: , Posted on: - Categories: Zzz archive

There is an incredible range of voluntary opportunities in the east midlands. No idea what you want to do? Only have an hour a week to give? No problem! We have something for everybody, from mentoring to helping at a job club.

If you're still not sure, let Rebecca Turner from HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC), Nottingham inspire you;

“I feel I am making a valuable contribution in supporting vulnerable people in society. It has been a rewarding and worthwhile experience, which has enabled me to learn new skills and strengthen existing ones”

If you would like to know more about the opportunities on offer please contact Becky Turner (Derbyshire, Lincolnshire & Nottinghamshire) or Damien Keenan-Dilks (Leicestershire & Northamptonshire).
