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.

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