Volunteering with Hertfordshire County Council
Hertfordshire County Council welcomes volunteers and values the contribution they make to their local communities.
Over 500 people already volunteer with the county council, in a wide range of roles which help improve life in our local communities. These include:
- Conservation work
- Health Walk leaders
- Helping provide a home library service to people who are housebound
- Sitting with an older or disabled person to give their carer a much needed break.
- Helping out at events
- Promoting home safety with the Fire and Rescue Service
- Sitting on school admissions appeals panels
- Helping archive important community records and documents
- Mentoring young people
Volunteers bring a wealth of skills and experience to their roles. And in return, we promise to do the best we can to make the experience both rewarding and enjoyable.
Volunteers come from all walks of life, all age groups, with a broad range of experience and skills to bring to their roles.
There are many reasons why you might want to volunteer, but whether it’s to help people and give something back to society, to gain work experience and improve skills and confidence, or simply to meet new people and pursue particular interests – volunteering with us should benefit both you, the council and the local community.
On these pages you will find a Guide to Volunteering with Hertfordshire County Council, and information about the different volunteering opportunities available across our services.
