If you would like to volunteer in Barnsley and aren't sure where to start, then you've come to the right place.


At the Volunteer Centre, we can help you find a volunteering opportunity that is right for you and matches your skills and interests.


We can provide a personal one to one service to help you get into volunteering by providing an appointment to see one of our volunteer advisers. This is an informal chat about what you would like to do. They can then tell you more about the volunteer opportunities near you, help you apply, as well as give you advice and guidance.  We can do this over the phone, email, text or in person at a face to face appointment.


To make an appointment you can - 


Phone 01226 812183

Email volunteer@barnsleycvs.org.uk


We host appointments throughout the week at Priory Campus on Pontefract Road, Barnsley S71 5PN or at our Queens Road office 23 Queens Road, Barnsley S71 1AN. However, we can meet depending on where is best for you, such as at a local library or community centre.


From Wednesday 31st August 2019, we are also hosting weekly drop in sessions at The Lightbox in town.  So if you are passing and want a quick chat about volunteering, then pop in and see us every Wednesday and Friday between 10am - 2pm on the ground floor, and we would be happy to help. No appointment is needed!


You don't need to make an appointment with us to get into volunteering. If you would just like to browse what volunteering opportunities are out there yourself, then head over to our search page, which is updated regularly with new opportunities.  You could even sign up for an online account and apply directly for a role you like the sound of.
