Volunteer Centre Themed Opportunity Calendar


-A A +A

Each month Volunteer Centre Salford will feature volunteering opportunities based on a different theme. A table listing all the volunteering opportunities on the Volunteer Centre's database that fit into each month’s particular theme will be displayed along with the name of the organisation providing the opportunity.

The monthly opportunities calendar provides a more targeted approach for individuals looking to volunteer in a specific area.

May 2018 is Dementia Opportunities Month

Dementia Action Week takes place during May and is an annual awareness-raising campaign led by the Alzheimer’s Society. They are working to create a dementia-friendly UK and are asking everyone to take actions big and small to improve the lives of people affected by dementia. For more information about the week go to.

Salford is working towards becoming a dementia-friendly City and this month we are featuring opportunities for organisations who support people affected by dementia.

Volunteering is a great way to meet new people, improve health and wellbeing as well as gaining valuable skills that are totally transferable and can be used to help gain paid employment. Full training will be provided by the organisation so volunteers don’t usually need any particular qualifications or experience. Also, volunteers can receive an up to date reference once they have been volunteering for a while.

Below is a list of opportunities available with organisations in Salford. If you see an opportunity that you would like to apply for or would like more information on you can log in to our portal and express an interest. If you don't have a login you will be prompted to create one. If you would like more information about our portal, please contact the Volunteer Centre on 0161 787 7795 or email volunteer@salfordcvs.co.uk.

If you are an organisation that is able to offer a related opportunity please contact the Volunteer Centre to make sure we include your opportunity in our list.
