Volunteering opportunities in the Blackdown Hills and surrounds

Do It – volunteering website

Join a local group and if they need help, they often do, whether you have a specific skill set to offer or just enthusiam, or become a parish councillor, or Neighbourhood Plan committee member, whatever your interests you will find something just right.

Or why not start your own community initiative, project or community run enterprise – it could be litter picking, a swimming pool or a community orchard? What ever you have in mind do talk to the parish council we might just be able to help you set up with a little funding, or signpost you for more help!
