The ngage website has been designed to help you to become more involved in opportunities to influence local decisions and play a more active role in Thurrock through volunteering, timebanking and active citizenship opportunities.
Sign up to ensure that you are kept informed about opportunities on how you can get more  "ngaged" in Thurrock!. You can also watch our ngage video.......Watch our video!

Volunteer Centre Thurrock can assist local people in finding a volunteering role with either local or national organisations. We can also support organisations in finding volunteers, so visit our website and click on the Volunteer Centre tab to find out more.

Timebanking is a great way to be part of the community and to offer your skills or spare time to help other people and to choose help that you would like in return. For example, a Time Bank member may help with clearing someones garden, and in return, could get help with a DIY project from a different Time Bank member. Each person decides what they can offer and everyones time is equal. So one hour of your time is equal to one hour of someones time. It does not matter what you choose to exchange.                                
  Come and join the ‘Make a Difference’ clean up event this October!

ngage are holding a clean-up day in Grays on Wednesday 19th October, 11am – 2pm and are encouraging people to come along and get involved. 

Some areas in Grays are in need of a good litter pick and general tidy, so we have identified 4 routes that can be taken and cleaned on the day.  If people are Time Bank members they will also be able to claim Time Credits for helping at this event

The clean-up day has been organised to support ‘Make a Difference Day’, one of the largest single days of volunteering taking place on Saturday 22nd October 2016.

Come along and join us for a fun litter picking scavenger hunt in Grays. Please wear appropriate clothing and footwear. Refreshments will be provided and everyone is welcome

If you’re are not able to get involved in the clean-up, there are still many ways in which people can make a difference locally such as taking part in a consultation, volunteering, joining a local community group or just helping neighbours with simple chores.

Call us today to register your interest on 01375 389893. We will then forward further information to you. Click on the Timebanking section to find out how to become a Time Bank member.
