Volunteering

Volunteers are the lifeblood of BSEVC and there are a number of ways that you can be involved, why not contact us to find out more or you can come along for a chat and a cuppa at one of our open mornings.
 

Volunteering is an ideal way to keep active, meet new people, learn new skills or to give something back to your community. Some volunteers have found it very useful when returning to work to brush up on skills or to build a CV.
 

When you volunteer and for how long each time is up to you, volunteers choose when they want to give up their time. We reimburse your out of pocket expenses.
