  • Volunteering is the most basic act of goodwill
  • Voluntary work should be fun…

    ...which means you, the volunteer, should get as much out of volunteering, as the people you are helping.

  • Volunteering is something that everyone can do. Whatever your interests, wherever you live, whether you have a lot of time or a little. If you want to change the world, your street or your CV. If you want to make friends, feel useful, put something back or gain a skill. Whether you're young or old, male or female, employed or unemployed, disabled or able bodied. No matter what your ethnicity, faith, sexual orientation or culture.

There are many different types of volunteering opportunity in the area.

Volunteers get everywhere

  • health,
  • education,
  • social services,
  • youth,
  • sports and recreation,
  • environment,
  • culture and arts and
  • their local community.

Video Volunteering project

snvb has launched an exciting new project to bring a touch of Hollywood to volunteering!

The idea came about as potential volunteers often ask us what an opportunity entails or what the group is like and we thought a video would be an excellent way to give people a flavour of the role and encourage them to get involved.

Inspired by similar schemes in other areas, we have recruited a volunteer to produce a series of informal video clips, illustrating and promoting volunteering opportunities through YouTube and the snvb website. 

Take a look at our first ‘blockbuster’, directed and produced by volunteer Christian Aisbett, a Film and Television student at Derby University. This short film features passengers and drivers from our Brackley Area Voluntary Car Service (BAVCS).

If you would like to volunteer with BAVCS or would like us to create a promotional film for your volunteering opportunities, contact Lorraine on 01327 358264.
