Our Volunteer Team helps local organisations be the best they can be through giving best practice guidance on volunteer recruitment and management, supervision, training, engagement and retention.

Visit our Volunteer Centre - 2 Queen Street, Bridgend town centre and have a chat with our Volunteer Team.

Open 10am - 4pm, Monday - Friday, we provide one to one confidential interviews which are designed to provide volunteers with the information they require to make informed choices in volunteering. Registration for organisations is free of charge.

We also run a Volunteer Management Forum which brings organisations together and provides peer support, legal updates, information on safe volunteering and working practices and to learn and share ways to continuously improve the quality and diversity of opportunities to local volunteers.
