Visit our NEW Volunteer Centre in Queen Street, Bridgend town centre!

Bridgend AM Carwyn Jones opens Bridgend’s new Volunteer Centre

Do you enjoy meeting new people? Are you looking for a change of direction? Have you thought about volunteering?poster

The Volunteer Centre is open 10am - 4pm, Monday - Friday.

Whatever your motivation, whatever your interests, you can pop in and have a coffee and chat with us. There is no obligation to sign up to anything, just lots of information on options for people to take away and think about. 

The Volunteer Centre is situated at 2 Queen Street, Bridgend, CF31 1HX.

You can gain so much by volunteering:

  • Meet new people and make new friends;
  • Gain useful work experience;
  • Learn new skills and use the ones you have already;
  • Build confidence;
  • Provide a real service to your community;
  • Add to your CV;
  • Do something you enjoy.

People volunteer for many different reasons: to help other people in the community, gain work experience, learn new skills, meet new people, gain access to training or to "just get out of the house." Whatever the reasons, people get a lot out of volunteering.

logoBAVO provides a county wide Volunteer Centre which offers up-to-date information, advice and guidance to people who are looking for volunteering opportunities. Whether you are an organisation looking for volunteers, or an individual looking for a suitable volunteering opportunity, registering with BAVO is free.

With over 300 registered voluntary organisations offering a range of volunteering opportunities, BAVO’s Volunteer Centre can match your skills and interests with a vacancy that suits you best.

We provide one to one confidential interviews which are designed to provide volunteers with the information they require to make informed choices in volunteering.

There are many opportunities, from administrative work to driving, conservation to education. You can work with many different organisations and people in your area and most organisations offer training and pay out-of-pocket expenses. You could make a real difference.

BAVO has details of lots of local volunteering opportunities, and there is bound to be one that suits your interests.
