There are lots of ways people can volunteer, find out about the variety of opportunities available
Creating Volunteer Opportunities
The majority of the groups registered with the Neighbourhood Network are from the Voluntary and Community Sector, with the lead contact co-ordinating the group on an entirely voluntary basis. This means the hard work is undertaken without financial reward, often in evenings or weekends around a paid job.
Create a Neighbourhood Network group in your area
Whether this is a Neighbourhood Watch group, Neighbours group, Community group, Residents Association, Social Media group, just as long as you are bringing a community together in whatever way you feel fit, giving the opportunity for people to communicate and share their concerns, raise issues, create community events collectively giving your community a voice and making a difference!
To create a new group or join your active group to benefit from the Neighbourhood Network services, please complete our registration form below.
Join an active Neighbourhood Network group in your area
If someone is wanting to volunteer within a certain geographical area that they live or work, the Neighbourhood Network can connect individuals to the groups registered and operating in that area.
Individuals may also want to volunteer on a project such as with the homeless, helping the environment or those with disabilities for example, where again the Neighbourhood Network can create connections with member groups who fit these criteria.
