This website has been created for volunteers who are looking to help within their local community and organisations that need volunteers.
If you are looking to provide help as a volunteer then visit the volunteer registration page. Here you will be asked some basic details so we can understand how you want to help. Once you have registered you will be sent an email to the address you provided to complete the registration process. As organisations add volunteering opportunities that match your interests you will be sent a weekly email notifications (if you have selected that in the registration). You can also simply access your account using your username and password to check if any of the registered organisations can use your skills and help plus update your profile if your interests change
If at any time you want to change the volunteering opportunities you are interested in or change any of your account information then go into your account using your username and password and edit your profile.
If your organisation needs volunteers…
We can help. Good for Essex has one simple aim – to help organisations such as yours find and recruit willing volunteers. This website is a ‘one stop shop’ for promoting volunteering opportunities in Essex and getting people to use their skills and energy to help their community.
How it works...
Firstly, you need to register your organisation and volunteering opportunities with your nearest volunteer centre. The opportunities you register will appear on this website, as well as being discussed with potential volunteers who get in touch with volunteer centres.
Opportunities will be matched to and seen by volunteers who are interested in helping with your type of opportunity and/or have the skills that you need. Registering your opportunities means you are immediately gaining access to a number of potential volunteers. It may be that you need someone to help you answer the phone for an hour a week or you require assistance with transport, it could even be that you need help with social media or need someone hands -on to help decorate your organisation’s offices. Volunteers in Essex really want to help you whether they have a little or a lot of time to give.
To register your organisation and volunteering opportunities, get in touch to your local volunteer centre (listed below), or visit Volunteer Essex.
