Welcome to our new way of advertising volunteer opportunities and recruiting volunteers. Our brokerage service is now on VOLIFE with all our current vacancies uploaded.
VOLIFE has been conceived and built by the Volunteer Centre – Chesterfield & NE Derbyshire. All Volunteer Centres in Derbyshire have signed up to VOLIFE to promote volunteering
VOLIFE will enhance the volunteering process for the two principal groups involved:
• Anyone seeking the ideal volunteering opportunity
• Any organisation seeking volunteers to further their activities
Please take a look at our section of VOLIFE and the opportunities we are advertising. If you are interested in any opportunity you can sign straight up from the site or contact myself and if you are a voluntary organisation or group and are looking for volunteers you can either advertise straight from VOLIFE or we can send you the paper forms.
If you can't find a suitable opportunity on VOLIFE, contact us we may still know of an opportunity for you.
