Volunteer Opportunities with South Derbyshire CVS

We have a range of volunteer roles at SDCVS. Some are behind the scenes and others are supporting service users. Most of them don't require any particular skills or experience as we provide training. You can help out a couple of hours once a month or twice a week – it's up to you.

Here's an idea of what you could be doing.

You could help out on our reception and gain customer service skills or provide admin support for our projects. You could help make up food parcels or collect food donations from drop off points.

You could use your practical skills like gardening or driving to help others.

You could provide one to one practical support for a month to help someone get back on their feet or longer term befriending to individuals who are lonely or isolated.

For an initial discussion and to find out more, email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call 01283 219761 and ask for Elspeth or Selina.
