Thank you for your interest in joining the LBBD Volunteering Team, helping residents in our community that need support and guidance. Throughout the coronavirus pandemic, we have worked with local voluntary organisations to get support out to people that need it.

Volunteering for the council also offers the opportunity to learn and develop new skills, meet new people and it is a pathway towards seeking employment or further education.

The LBBD volunteering team have recently reopened up a variety of volunteering opportunities with more to come as we slowly recover from the pandemic, so if you would like to join our team, supporting our services and residents, please sign up:
