Volunteer Centre   


At Volunteer Centre Central Bedfordshire we work with individuals, voluntary organisations, community groups and public sector organisations to promote and develop volunteering.   

We are the first point of contact for anyone interested in finding out about local volunteering opportunities, and every year help hundreds of local people become actively involved in their communities.

Looking to Volunteer?

Volunteers contribute their time, energy, knowledge and skills to benefit people in the community but volunteers get something back too. Volunteering can be a great way to:

  • learn new skills
  • gain useful experience
  • meet new people
  • have fun!                    ...find out more.  

Involving volunteers?

Is your organisation looking to recruit volunteers? Our knowledge of local voluntary organisations and the opportunities they have to offer makes us the first point of contact for anyone interested in finding out about local volunteering opportunities.  

Volunteer Centres are committed to promoting equal opportunities and challenging barriers to volunteering. Our services are free and confidential and are accredited by Volunteering England.           ...find out more.
