Volunteer Centre understands that people have many demands on
their time and feel unsure about making a regular commitment to
volunteering, as well as the emotional investment it may
flexiteering provides the perfect solution
for people with skills to share, but limited time to do so.
flexiteers will experience all the rewards of volunteering,
knowing that they are adding value to the West Berkshire
Once registered as a flexiteer, the Volunteer Centre will keep
you informed when local charities, voluntary and community
groups tell us they have a requirement for the help of a
volunteer for a short term, or one off project or activity.
As a flexiteer, you will have the freedom to choose which
activities you would like to get involved with suiting your
interests, skills and availability.
||Caroline ... runs
her own business and says:
The flexiteer project is a fantastic idea, because it
enables me to engage with volunteering in a way that
doesnt require me to make a regular commitment that I
will be unable to sustain. Now I have registered, I am
able to learn about opportunities to get involved with
that help others by using my business skills, or perhaps
doing something completely different!
