We believe that volunteering should be FUN. It’s often hard work but it should always be rewarding and make you feel like you were useful.

Below is our current list of Volunteering Opportunities. If you’re interested in helping us with one of these, or would like to let us know about what skills you’d like to use or practice, fill in our Volunteer Expression of Interest form here >

Club Volunteering

Thought about doing something more regularly?

We have over 100 affiliated clubs across the county that could use your support! We can find a club locally to you and put you in touch with the club leader.

Your support could involve lots of things from leading or playing games with the young people to helping to run the tuckshops.

Just being there with a smile can make a difference!!!!

Do you have Knowledge or skills in a specific field, maybe arts and craft or martial Arts, that you could share with the clubs.

Working directly with young people isn’t the only option, there are various roles that are vitally important in maintaining a club such as fundraising, keeping accounts, recording minutes.

EBGC can help you to obtain a DBS and support you along the way with training needs if that’s from supporting your Young Volunteers to your Adult Volunteers.
