For anyone interested in volunteering

Tuesday 7 February 2023

10.00am - 12.00pm

As a volunteer you can make a real difference to other people’s lives, while also:

  • Building new skills and confidence

  • Gaining experience that could help you into employment or a new career

  • Meeting new people and feeling connected

  • Giving you purpose

There are a wide range of rewarding roles available within the Better Start Bradford programme and beyond to suit different starting points and circumstances.

The first and best step is to come along to the Laisterdyke Centre (a designated Warm Space) on Tuesday 7 February to find out everything you need to know. We promise you warm drinks, warm hands and warm hearts with:

  • A chance to chat with existing volunteers about how volunteering has changed their lives
  • ‘Stay warm’ advice, plus a free winter-warmer goodie bag, tea, coffee, hot chocolate and healthy snacks!
