The Volunteer Matching Service

Thank you to the 2000 people who have now signed up to help!

The Community Impact Bucks team, with support from staff at The Clare Foundation and Bucks Council have been working hard to match all volunteers to roles across the County.

Due to the incredible number of people who have offered their help Bucks Council have now paused recruitment of new volunteers so they can solely focus on matching people to where they’re needed most in the community.

Bucks Council anticipate that there will be a huge need for volunteers locally and nationally over the coming weeks and months, particularly when the lockdown restrictions change and as communities move into the recovery stages.

Bucks Council, Community Impact Bucks and The Clare Foundation are making initial contact with an increasing number of volunteers by phone. This is to collect information which will help us to create a pool of volunteers and to match them with organisations in need of help.

Sarah who has been volunteering at the new Olympic Lodge care facility since early April was welcomed by the friendly and well-organised staff and finds it very rewarding to be doing something useful as part of a team.

If the volunteer matching service has already matched you with an organisation, Community Impact Bucks would love to hear from you and help share your stories about the difference you are making. Send your stories to covidvolunteering@communityimpactbucks.org.uk.
