Buckinghamshire Volunteer Matching Service

The Buckinghamshire Volunteer Matching Service is calling for more Bucks residents to sign-up as volunteers to help local people and communities during the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic.

The Volunteer Matching Service, which is currently run by Community Impact Bucks in patnership with Buckinghamshire Council and the Clare Foundation, matches registered volunteers to roles where they are most needed in the county. The service is currently planning for an expected increase in need in our communities over the coming weeks and is looking for volunteers to fill key roles - from adhoc, one-off tasks such as PPE delivery to longer term positions such as regular supermarket collections, mentoring for young people and providing ongoing support for vunerable people.

There is a call for volunteers across the county but in particular from the Wycombe, Missendens and Chesham areas.

It takes just 2 minutes to register; once this has been submitted, somebody from the Volunteer Matching Service will be in contact when a potentially suitable role is available. At that time you can choose if the role is a good fit for you. To find out more and to register, visit https://communityimpactbucks.org.uk/buckinghamshire-volunteer-matching-service (01-11-20)
