Volunteering Fair

Welcome to the 2021 Volunteering Fair.

This year we are joined by a range of charities and not-for-profit organisations, all ready to talk to you about getting involved in volunteering and making a difference in the community.

The Volunteering Fair brings together local and national charities and not-for-profit organisations so you can find a volunteering role that's suitable for you. Many of the charities have adapted volunteering opportunities to virtual or home-based roles so you can complete your role remotely.
