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.                                


The next Volunteer Recruitment Fayre to help people find volunteering opportunities and to meet organisations seeking volunteers.  The drop-in event is being held on:

Thursday 22nd September 2016 between 11am-2pm at the Beehive,
West Street, Grays, Essex, RM17 6XP.

Our recruitment fayres are a great way for people to find out about volunteering, as it can bring many benefits such as enhancing your CV, making new friends, improving employment prospects and gaining new skills. We also have a Time Bank stall there for people to find out more about the Time bank project.

We have helped a lot of people into volunteering and timebanking through the recruitment fayres, they are very in formal and people can just pop in for a chat and have a cup of tea and some cake.
