This year Volunteers Week is running from the 3rd June - 9th June 2024.

Barnsley CVS are hosting a volunteer recruitment event for people looking for volunteering opportunities. There will be a big variety of charities and voluntary organisations represented at the event, all offering different kinds of volunteer opportunities.

The event is being held on Wednesday 5th June from 10am-2pm at Barnsley Market, at the bottom of the escalators.

Volunteering is a great opportunity to make friends, develop new skills and build up your CV. We are sure that there is something for everyone!
