Bluebell Wood Childrens’ Hospice is a well known organisation that is keen to hear from anyone who can support their cause of caring for and supporting young people with life-limiting or life-threatening conditions. To find out more, visit their website.
Increasingly, volunteers are not only essential to our modern expectations of society’s provisions; be it someone who supports pupils in primary school by supporting reading schemes or someone else providing support to those with long-term medical conditions but also provide meaningful opportunities for those with time to spare.
Some may get involved with police force (see Law & Order ► Get involved for ‘Specials’ opportunities) or the health service (St.John’s Ambulance or First Responders) or come onboard with local groups such as those highlighted in our Local Groups section, others may be looking more widely. Idle Valley Nature Reserve also need volunteers - have a look at their poster on our Job Opportunities page.
Volunteering is a great opportunity for individuals to expand horizons, meet some very interesting people, and get a real ‘buzz’ from doing something worthwhile.
