The Volunteer Centre West Berkshire is a charitable incorporated organisation, formed in 1974. The organisation’s overriding ethos is to match local people to local need. They provide information, advice and guidance and personally match people to one of the more 350 volunteering opportunities in West Berkshire.
They also provide help and information to charitable organisations in West Berkshire, whether helping start a new charity or providing assistance with fundraising, training and governance. As well as run local schemes providing help for socially isolated and the elderly.
