People choose to volunteer with the Congleton Partnership for a variety of reasons. For some it offers the chance to give something back to the community or make a difference to the people around them. It could be a chance to learn new skills, meet new people, save the environment, feel valued and part of a ‘like-minded’ team. Whatever your reason for wanting to volunteer in Congleton we are sure we have the right project for you!
There are many opportunities within the partnership. To give you an idea of the type of opportunities available read below:
