Do You Need Volunteers

Both our Volunteer Centres supports organisations from the Voluntary, Community, Public and Private Sectors of St Helens and surrounding areas in creating and developing their volunteering programmes.

We are your local experts on volunteering and have a range of tools and materials available to support volunteers and organisations.

 We Can Help You:

  • Find suitable volunteers through our brokerage service.  We advertise tailored volunteering vacancies and match them up with potential volunteers.  We promote volunteering through events such as National Volunteers Week, recruitment events and outreach activities across both boroughs.
  • Select suitable volunteers, through advising on interviewing and selection procedures and we can help by undertaking some initial screening for you.  We advise you to take out reference and other checks that are suitable to your organisation and the opportunities you are selecting for.
  • Get your volunteers off to a good start.  We can help with induction arrangements and training, including helping you find more specialised training.
  • Keep your volunteers by advising you on how to support them effectively, including issues around expenses, benefits and insurance.
  • Develop your work with volunteers.  We keep a wide range of resources including publications on issues associated with volunteering. 
  • Provide thank you events for your volunteers and coordinators.
  • Provide you with training and support around managing your volunteers.
  • Give you a forum to discuss your volunteering programme amongst your peers in the form of our Volunteer Coordinators Network.
