Volunteering in Uttlesford
There are numerous voluntary groups in the district supporting a wide range of organisations.
Local volunteer groups
You can contact many groups directly, or there are a number of local organisations that help to coordinate voluntary work.
Volunteer Centre Uttlesford
The Volunteer Centre enables volunteers to work with organisations that need volunteers in order to operate effectively. If you're an organisation that's looking for volunteers then we'll help you to find the people that you need. If you're someone that's looking to give your time, we can help you find the perfect role.
If you are interested in volunteering check out our Volunteering opportunities page.
The Council for Voluntary Service Uttlesford (CVS) supports and promotes volunteering across the Uttlesford District and works with individuals who wish to volunteer.
The Uttlesford Citizens Advice Bureau offers a free, impartial and independent service, with a wide range of support available from specialists. It also trains and supports volunteers.
Volunteering with local libraries
We're looking for volunteers to get involved in a variety of activities in Essex libraries. There's something for everyone, whatever your interests and the time you have available. By volunteering with us you can develop your skills, meet new people and contribute to your local community. In Uttlesford there are libraries in Great Dunmow, Saffron Walden, Stansted and Thaxted.
Voluntary litter picking
If you, your town or parish council, school or local community group would like to organise and carry out a voluntary litter pick in the district, Uttlesford District Council can loan you all the equipment you will require.
