Volunteering with the council

Volunteering with Thurrock Council

Volunteering is about doing something to benefits others, not for financial gain.

Volunteering can take many different forms such as:

  • helping with activities in children centres
  • helping train people to use computers
  • supporting youth clubs
  • helping to run events
  • befriending others

Volunteering has many benefits, such as:

  • gaining new experience
  • enhancing your skills
  • adding something new to your CV
  • building confidence
  • making new friends
  • feeling good about helping others

If you are interested in volunteering with us have a look at our list of opportunities. If you see an opportunity of interest, read the role description carefully and check who can be a volunteer.

Once you find a suitable role you should complete and send us an application form.

The volunteer manager will contact you to arrange an informal chat, either in person or by phone.

Other local volunteering opportunities are advertised through the Volunteer Essex website.
