Anyone can volunteer - Huntingdonshire Volunteer Centre believes that we can all make a contribution to our community. There are many different opportunities available – working in museums, charity shops, helping with fundraising, being a Trustee or leading campaigns. Our on line site is constantly being updated with new roles. You can either apply on-line or make an appointment and come into any of our local offices to look at the opportunities that might be right for you.
Volunteers are at the heart of everything that Huntingdonshire Volunteer Centre (HVC) does. We work to recruit volunteers - matching personal skills and interests to the right volunteer opportunities - and to promote the benefits that volunteering brings to individuals and to the many charities and organisations in Huntingdonshire. HVC couldn't manage without our own team of valuable volunteers who help run our services and it is our aim to match all volunteers who come to us with the right organisation and role for them.
