Volunteering is the bedrock of what we do – many of the groups that we support would be unable to run if not for the people who give their time and skills for free to benefit others.

Over one third of the UK’s adults volunteer at least once a month, whether it be to meet new people, develop skills and confidence, give back to their local communities, or simply have fun! Volunteering opportunities are available in a number of different organisations, and volunteers carry out a wide range of roles, so it is easy to find the right opportunity for you.

West Devon CVS is now a partner in Devon Connect, a dedicated online platform that has streamlined the volunteering process for volunteers and voluntary organisations alike. On Devon Connect it easier than ever to find and post information, advertise and access volunteering opportunities, and get involved in projects and campaigns that make a positive impact in their communities. Sign up to Devon Connect today to see the full range of volunteering opportunities currently available across Devon.

As a partner in Devon Voluntary Action, we have also helped to create a number of guides and templates that can aid voluntary and community groups when they are writing policies, ensuring their volunteers will be fully supported in their work. Find Devon Voluntary Action’s full range of guides and templates here.
