Why volunteer with us?

Our volunteer programme offers a wide variety of opportunities, and we aim to build a team of happy volunteers, who have enjoyable and rewarding experiences.

We offer our volunteers:

  • a dedicated Volunteer Coordinator
  • a range of projects, tasks and roles to choose from
  • a mix of on-site, off-site and online opportunities
  • work experience placements, as well as a variety of regular, short or long term and ad hoc ‘micro’ projects; and a mix of unskilled, skilled and professional tasks in all possible areas of the service
  • training to meet individual volunteer and specific project/role needs
  • volunteer and staff buddies
  • regular reviews and opportunities to try new projects
  • welcoming on-site facilities
  • social events and opportunities to join in other activities
  • some travel expenses

We work in line with Cornwall Council’s Equality and Diversity Framework and good practice guidelines for volunteering. Contact our Volunteer Coordinator or email them at kresenkernow@cornwall.gov.uk if you have any questions or you are interested in applying for a volunteer placement.
