Volunteers available for local community projects
23rd March 2018
Stevenage Community Trust has worked with a number of local businesses over the years to match their staff volunteers with local organisations and we are currently seeking suitable projects for 2018. Groups of volunteers range from 2-3 people up to 60+ and they typically offer their time for 1 day during Monday – Friday.
If your organisation is a not-for-profit charity, community group, school or sports club, has a suitable project or requirement, and is based in Stevenage or the surrounding villages of Aston, Benington, Cromer, Datchworth, Graveley, Knebworth, Little Wymondley, Old Knebworth, Walkern, Watton-at-Stone, Weston, and Woolmer Green then please provide brief details to firstname.lastname@example.org
Note: Stevenage Community Trust will pass on details of all eligible projects to interested companies but will not be part of the selection process. If your project is successful, Stevenage Community Trust cannot be responsible for health and safety, well-being, safe guarding or any other matters that arise during the placement. Where applicable, we would strongly suggest your organisation and the company volunteers ensure all policies, procedures, risk assessments, training, insurances and identity checks are in place prior to the work commencing.
Is your organisation looking for funding?
Applications to our community grants programme are invited from local organisations including charities, community groups, sports clubs and schools who operate in Stevenage and the surrounding villages, or who provide support or services to those living here. Please see our grants page to read our latest guidelines and to download an application form.
Funding for the Over 60’s
Thanks to a substantial donation from The Chauncy Charity, we can continue offering grants specifically to support people in later life. If you are a charity, community or voluntary group supporting older people and are in need of funding for an event, project, equipment or activity, please consider making an application to us.
