What we do

We help you find the perfect volunteer opportunity, by matching your interests and availability to local charities and community groups who could really benefit from your time and skills.

 

 

Search for local opportunities on the national volunteering database Do-it.org, or call into the Volunteer Centre for a chat and we can help you find the perfect volunteering opportunity.  Find us on Uckfield High Street (just up from the cinema).

As well as helping people with volunteering we also provide local information such as bus timetables, a photocopying & laminating service, replacement hearing aid batteries and computer training (see What We Do for more details).

In addition, we support our community groups and local charities by providing networking events and training.  If you are a local organisation and are interested click for more information about becoming a member.
