From grassroots committees to national and international charities, volunteers are crucial to the effective operation and delivery of services across communities in County Durham. The way that an organisation recruits, manages and invests in its volunteers can have a demonstrable impact on the individual, the organisation, and the community it serves.
Everyone has the right to volunteer. Volunteers can be any age and from any background. They can be studying, working or retired. They could be looking for work or seeking asylum.
Every volunteer has their own reasons for volunteering.
If you’re a charity or community group looking for volunteers, or you’re looking to volunteer yourself, we provide a range of services to help.
