Looking for volunteers?

The Maldon and District Volunteer Centre provides information, advice and support to organisations that involve volunteers in their activities and services. We can assist in the promotion of volunteering vacancies and give guidance on volunteer management.

Registering with the Volunteer Centre

The Volunteer Centre runs a brokerage service to promote volunteering. By listing your opportunities with us, your opportunities will be promoted throughout our networks including the Volunteer Essex website.

We meet with hundreds of people every year who are interested in volunteering and speak to them about the opportunities and organisations we are in contact with.

If you would like to have your opportunities included on our database you will need to register with the Centre – click here for the Volunteer Centre Registration Form.

If you are already a member of M&DCVS you will need to log into Volunteer Essex with the log in details provided by us and upload your opportunities.

If you are not yet registered with M&DCVS please visit our Membership page for more information.

Remember to help us to recruit volunteers successfully and effectively you should keep your Volunteer Roles up to date with any changes to your opportunities, adding any new opportunities, removing roles where you no longer require volunteers and adding details of any forthcoming training dates.

Volunteer Management

Volunteer Centre member organisations are assisted to provide support to volunteers placed with them and follow good practice guidelines.

The Volunteer Centre can provide guidance on issues and questions around various aspects of volunteer management including:

  • developing new volunteer roles and writing role descriptions
  • advice on risk assessments and DBS checking
  • reimbursing expenses
  • supervision of volunteers
  • writing a Volunteer policy
  • Volunteer agreements
  • involving young volunteers

We also work to promote volunteering across the district and ensure volunteering is represented in strategic and local priorities.
