Beanstalk


Could you bring the magic of reading to a child in South Gloucestershire?
Beanstalk is a national literacy charity that transforms children’s life chances by recruiting and supporting volunteers and placing them in local primary schools. These volunteers work with children who have either fallen behind with their reading, lack confidence, or struggle with their fluency, comprehension or vocabulary.
The charity is searching for more members of the community in South Gloucestershire who can spare a few hours a week supporting children in local primary schools. As a Beanstalk reading helper in a local school you will work with three children at a local primary school and spend 30 minutes with each child twice a week, during term-time, for at least one academic year.

Tel: 0845 450 0307

Have your got spare time on your hands? Want to help in the local community? Then become a volunteer driver/leaflet distributor.
We provide transport to those members of the community who, for whatever reason, cannot use existing transport services.

Healthwatch


Healthwatch can shape and improve local health and social care services for the future but we need volunteers to find out what people think works well and how they would like to see care improved.

Volunteers can represent Healthwatch at health and social care meetings and boards or help staff information stands at venues such as local hospitals and GP surgeries, visit and talk to local community groups and attend big community events to find out what local people want and need from their local health care services. Healthwatch volunteers can also be trained to ‘enter and view’ health and care services to observe the service and make recommendations to help make the service better.

Sharpness Lifeboat Station - Volunteer Fundraisers


We provide a lifeboat search-and-rescue service on the Severn Estuary between Gloucester and the Severn Bridges – one of the most challenging waterways in the UK. We need a volunteer fundraising crew who can give some of their weekend time, working alongside the operational lifeboat crew to collect the essential donations that keep the lifeboat station running.

If you are 18+, enthusiastic, willing to tell our story to the public – and able to give at least 20 hours a year of your time, then this volunteering opportunity could be just right for you.

In return, we will introduce you to the work we do, give you occasional opportunity to go out on one of the lifeboats, give you a uniform, and involve you in the life of the lifeboat station. Suitable volunteers may also be able to progress to full operational crew in the future.

Please contact Hugh Inwood for more information about this role, or click on the link below to apply.
