Ever thought about volunteering but not sure where to start?

This summer might be the perfect time to go something great for your community!

This Summer might be the perfect time to get out into your local area, meet new people and do something great for yourself and your community. The New Forest Volunteer Centre has hundreds of opportunities available both indoors and out and you can meet one of our friendly volunteering ambassadors who can let you know about what’s available in your area. Over the next few weeks they are running sessions at local libraries, where you can find out more about being a volunteer. There's no need to make an appointment – just turn up!
