BRINGING VOLUNTEERING TO LIFE
The Volunteer Centre Chesterfield and North East Derbyshire – is a local volunteering development agency working independently to support organisations from the voluntary, community and public sectors. In our core work we promote, support and develop volunteering and aim to make a positive impact on the quality of the volunteering experience for individual volunteers and organisations that work with them.
The Volunteer Centre is part of a national network of agencies concerned with volunteers and volunteering – NCVO. We embrace these NCVO beliefs:
“We believe that volunteering is integral to delivering and supporting a diverse range of services and activities that enrich communities. Volunteering builds community capacity and helps to create cohesive, resilient communities that are better able to meet the social and economic challenges they face.”
We are committed to supporting, enabling and celebrating volunteering in all its diversity.
We do this by:
– Collating and publicising volunteering opportunities
– Supporting volunteers and helping them to make informed choices
– Providing training and support for volunteer-involving organisations
– Promoting good practice and other quality issues
– Developing new volunteering initiatives
Publicity and outreach work is carried out at venues in the Chesterfield and North East Derbyshire area as we make our service accessible to everyone. We provide extra support to those volunteers who need it for whatever reason and ensure our service is accessible for people with disabilities. We are working to recognised quality standards and an equal opportunities policy underpins all our work.
