“You never know where volunteering will take you!”

Residents are being reminded of the wide range of volunteering opportunities available with West Sussex County Council.

 

Release date: 6 June 2019

Residents are being reminded of the wide range of volunteering opportunities available with West Sussex County Council.

From creating better habitats for wildlife, to supporting a disabled child, there are roles to suit everyone.

Alice Millard started volunteering at the West Sussex Record Office to learn practical skills. She said: “Fast forward a few years and I now work as a Research Assistant! You never know where volunteering will take you.”

West Sussex Libraries are holding a series of events throughout the week to celebrate their volunteers. These roles include being a ‘Computer Buddy’ or bringing books to people in their homes who can no longer reach the library.

Debbie Kennard, West Sussex County Council Cabinet Member for Safer, Stronger Communities, said: “Our volunteers are brilliant and I would like to take this opportunity to thank them for everything they do.”

“Volunteering is a great way of meeting people, learning new skills and having fun! I would encourage people to take a look at the opportunities we have available and see what they might enjoy.”

Volunteers’ Week happens annually and is a chance to recognise volunteers and say thank you for the contribution they make.
