Working to support our community

Volunteers

Volunteers for Parish Council Projects work alongside Parish Councillors and Parish Council staff. Volunteers have a named Parish Councilor as their point of contact and are supported by that person in their volunteering role.

Specific roles are posted on this page when they become available but we also invite residents to fill out our volunteering form even if there is not something immediately available as we are happy to try to work with you to identify a suitable role if you have a particular interest or have noticed something that we are doing which you think you could help with.

Volunteers for Partner Projects

Volunteers for Partner Projects work with our partners and our role is simply to connect people with volunteer opportunities.

Often there is a link back into the work of the Parish Council or there are shared aims and objectives, but once the connection has been made, we are not involved in coordinating any of the volunteering which is done.

Specific roles are posted on this page when they become available and we rely on our Partner organisations to let us know when the role(s) are filled.

Volunteers for Community Projects

Volunteers for Community Projects are able to get in touch with Charlton Kings or Cheltenham based opportunities which we have been made aware of and have agreed to promote on this page.

Prospective volunteers use use the contact details and links provided to get in touch with the organisations listed and decide whether the volunteering opportunity is appropriate for them.

Specific roles are posted on this page when we become aware of them and though we try to keep them up to date we may sometimes be unaware that a role has been filled. Do drop us an email on community@charltonkingsparishcouncil.gov.uk if you notice that any roles are no longer available - thank you!
