Middlesbrough Council are keen to welcome people who want to help others. Volunteering for us will provide you with rewarding opportunities that can make a real difference to peoples' lives and the communities they live in. It can help you feel you are making a difference while gaining important skills and experiences, as well as making friends.
Volunteers make a huge contribution to the council, and are a critical part of how the council serves the wider town, and its residents. Across the council, over 600 volunteers help us with everything from preserving the town’s archives, to supporting people with some really challenging social issues through our Community Hubs. As the council moves forward and changes shape, working with volunteers will be an increasingly important way of ensuring that we continue to engage closely with our communities, drive service improvements and bring in new ideas. As well as the value to the council, it is also important for us to recognise the way that volunteering can make such a difference to individuals, through increased confidence, learning new skills and forming new relationships. Over the coming years we will continue to work closely with our fantastic volunteers to provide the support that makes us stronger together.
The opportunities currently available are listed below. For training and development opportunities, please visit the Middlesbrough Community Learning website.
