Do you need to top up your CV with evidence of work? Do you own or run a company and want to put something back into the local community? Perhaps you're recently retired, or new to the area and want to meet new people.

Whatever your reasons for volunteering, at River Holme Connections we have lots of different ways in which you can help, no matter how active you are. If you like getting out and about, come along to one of our events or join our work parties. If your skill is writing, design or photography, we could do with your help to write blogs or help us to produce eye-catching marketing material. It doesn't matter how much time you can spare. Even if it's 1 hour a month, it will make a difference.

We also have specific volunteer roles that we need help with, which you can read more about below.
