Volunteer Essex launched in July 2010 and brought together a number of independent volunteer agencies to provide a consistent county-wide service. Each office is run by a small team and are a part of a nationwide network.
They have had hundreds of charities who have come to them to find volunteers and thousands of local residents who have discovered volunteering to be a rewarding activity. They aim to give organisations support that enables them to get the right volunteers in place when they are needed. This cuts out time wasted on unsuitable volunteers so that precious resources aren’t eaten up with admin.
