Volunteer Fair – Building Stronger, Healthier Communities

Bede Tower, Bethany Christian Centre, Burdon Road, Sunderland SR2 7 DZ
1.30 - 4.00
Open to the public

VCAS are hosting an annual Volunteer recruitment fair, to showcase the many volunteering opportunities available throughout the city, in order that you can chat to lots of amazing charities and not for profit organisations about what you can do to make a difference. From helping out in the community, to being a friend to someone in need. Volunteering isn’t one size fits all, so come and join us and let us help you to work it out! It’s ideal for individuals leaving College or University, to gain hands on experience and in a real-life working environment. A real chance to gain further experience and qualifications, CV build, and volunteer up the career ladder at the same time. Great for those with spare time who want to keep socially active, volunteering has proven to stimulate the brain and promotes a healthier lifestyle, finding new friendship too. Perhaps, you feel you want to give back to your community and the time is right, it’s good for you and your health, boosting your skills and confidence, and strengthening the local communities at the same time. Did you know? Volunteering on a charity board is a great way to support a good cause while enjoying all sorts of benefi­ts for your personal and professional life. It allows you to train, learn, develop new skills and meet new people as you give back, and with an average time commitment of just 30 hours a year, what’s not to like! Not sure what’s involved, why not pop along for a chat! VCAS Volunteers Fair is FREE to people of all ages. There is no need to sign up, just come along on the day. The venue is inclusive and easily accessible. There will be a huge mix of charitable organisations in attendance on the day, Grace House, Healthwatch Sunderland, Independent Age, Sunderland Mind, Centrepoint, St Aidans Community Group, Foundation of Light, SNCBC Clean & Green, Oasis Aquilla Housing and many more
