Gainsborough: Great first year for Volunteering Centre

After moving to the Guildhall in Marshall’s Yard last August the Volunteer Centre in Gainsborough is now busier than ever.

Tuesday, 18th August 2015, 11:26 am
Jane Bennett (WLDC), Pat Walker (Lincolnshire Credit Union), Heather Arnatt (VCS), Jo Cooper and Henrietta Davis (Citizens Advice) get ready for the Volunteer Fair.

Voluntary Centre Services offers a brokerage service to match volunteers with volunteering opportunities across a vast array of community groups and charities operating in the West Lindsey region.

The centre has a private interview room where advisors will speak to you about your skills and requirements before trying to place you with a local group or charity.

The advisors understand that trying something new can be difficult and sometimes people need a bit of extra help, which is why they are able to match people with a trained mentor who can provide guidance and support.

The offices are open from 10am to 4pm Monday to Friday, or volunteers can also make appointments with an advisor online at
