Becoming a Volunteering Matters Community Ambassador is an opportunity to make a real, valuable contribution to your local community, and gives you a chance to utilise your life-skills in support of a worthy cause.
In turn, we will commit to supporting you as you develop in your Ambassador role and providing you with any resources you will need. If you’d like to apply to become a Volunteering Matters Community Ambassador, get in touch.
