The Volunteer Centres in Bradford and Keighley work to promote volunteering and to support local voluntary and community organisations across the District.
Volunteer Centres are a good place to start looking for volunteering opportunities in the local area. We do this by supporting people to identify volunteer roles that suit their skills and experience and matching them with potential roles with Voluntary and Community Organisations and other not-for-profit groups, to support the crucial work they do in the District. If you can spare an hour a month, or more, then get in touch and see if you can volunteer your time or skills to help one of these organisations.
We also provide infrastructure support to any group that needs help to recruit volunteers, we promote good practice, support the development of quality volunteer roles and work to ensure that volunteering is inclusive and accessible to all.
New volunteer opportunity
COMMUNITY SUPPORT VOLUNTEERS
Are you concerned about rising Covid infection rates in Bradford? Do you care about the people in your local area? If so, would you be able to offer a few hours a week to support a key project to carry out home tests to ensure early detection of the infection and prevent further spread.
You will be part of a team of two people. As a volunteer your role is to support a paid member of council or voluntary sector staff. You will talk to people to offer advice, find out their concerns and provide information in a friendly and approachable way. Your colleague will then guide the householder through the home testing process.
Full training will be given prior to starting and all volunteers will be provided with ID, appropriate PPE and all out of pocket expenses. The next training will take place on Wednesday 18th November.
For further information, please email GillB@cabad.org.uk.
