Do You Want to Volunteer?

Volunteers are people from all different backgrounds. There are so many reasons why people choose to participate in voluntary work, for example:

  • To improve confidence
  • To support a cause
  • To make use of skills, interests or experience
  • To do something fun
  • To meet new people and make new friends
  • To help improve skills or gain experience for your CV

Volunteering in Staffordshire is extremely rewarding, and everyone is welcome. Regardless of your age, ability or job status, we would love to hear from you and to help you find the ideal volunteer role.

It can be overwhelming when becoming a volunteer for the first time. At Chase CVS we strive to make the entire process easy for you, from finding the best volunteer opportunities to developing your volunteer skills. We welcome everyone to our facilities to learn, grow and give back to the communities.

Volunteers Week 2019

Volunteers Week takes place every year from the first to the seventh of June. Hundreds of events are organised to give thanks to volunteers across the UK. This is also a fantastic opportunity for organisations to promote volunteer opportunities and generally inform the public on how they can make a difference through volunteering. This volunteer program can even help you learn valuble skills which you can transfer over into paid employment. We work with a number of different organisations, so you can take part in everything from gardening to operating a scissor lift pallet truck.
