Summary of servicesWe help and supporting interested local people choose a kind of volunteering that will be satisfying for them as well as benefiting the community life of Sandwell.
We currently offer face to face interviews on a Wednesday afternoon, which last approximately 30 minutes each. In addition to these interviews, we occasionally offer drop in sessions on alternative days which are advertised in advance on our website news feed.

The majority of our volunteering roles are advertised on our online portal “Volunteer Connect”, which is a simple and straight forward way for people to browse and apply for roles online with no need to come in for an interview.

We also offer a supported volunteering service “Hands on Project” for individuals with any additional needs. People interested in this project would need to arrange an interview with the project manager, rather than apply directly through our web service.
