Volunteering can make a difference so what can you offer?
Our Partner DeVA has been awarded an Awards for All grant to help promote volunteering across the County, specifically aimed at those with specific skills. There are a wide range of volunteer opportunities available with local community groups looking for people with all types of skills including IT, Finance, social media, management, marketing and media. Clare Humphreys, Volunteering Support Coordinator said, “The money awarded will help us to promote and market volunteering in a way that we haven’t been able to before. By using social media and Google to its full potential we will be able to broaden our marketing of volunteering, and engage with a wider audience.”
