Happy 2021 and New Year everyone!

Wolverhampton Volunteer Centre is still open and helping you get into volunteering with whatever your journey and whatever your reasons.

Even under current restrictions, you can still volunteer. You can register on our web site and find volunteer opportunities to suit you. We can deal with queries over the telephone on 01902 328980 and can offer limited appointments if necessary.

Also, Our dedicated BBO ‘Building Better Opportunities’ Bridges Team are also here to help if you are over 25 and looking at help and support in getting back into employment. On behalf of Frank, Ren, Julie and myself, Pete Emms Project Coordinator, we look forward to helping you reach your ambitions and goals in 2021.

Volunteer Centre Update June 2020

Just a quick update on what’s been happening at The Volunteer Centre. In March, WVSC put a call out for volunteers to respond to the Covid 19 situation.

We have had over 600 people respond to help out to volunteer across Wolverhampton and our focus over the last few months has been in responding to this.

The good majority of these volunteers have been placed and have been helping some of the most vulnerable residents in our City.

The majority of organisations are now up to capacity for volunteers but we are still endeavouring to continue placing as many volunteers as possible. We thank everyone for their patience.

The Volunteer Centre is still offering a day to day service for volunteering, however, many organisations have suspended their volunteer recruitment due to the impact of Covid 19. So, once again, placements are taking a little longer to be offered.

Our BBO Bridges Project is still accepting referrals and continues to operate under these unique circumstances.

Organisations are slowly beginning to offer volunteer opportunities but it’s going to take a while for everyone to start operating at full capacity.

Thanks to everyone who has come forward at this moment in time and we look forward to working with you in the future and your volunteering journey.

Pete Emms: Volunteer Centre Coordinator.
