Volunteering is a great way to learn new skills, get active and make new friends.

Local opportunities are advertised at Do-it so you can search and apply for roles at any time to suit you.

The Volunteer Centre run by South Derbyshire CVS supports individuals looking to do something positive and organisations, including sports clubs and groups, which are seeking volunteers.
