The Volunteer Centre Dacorum is proud to announce the launch of our new website aimed at making it easier to volunteer. Our original web site was developed many years ago and, although it had been updated recently, it was still looking dated!
We registered for our new free website through Voice, an easy-to-use website builder, which is available free of charge to all community not-for-profit and voluntary groups in the U.K. We now have a very appealing and attractive site. Even if you don’t want to volunteer it is worth going online just to see the lovely photos of our local area – and our volunteers!
None of this would have been possible without the efforts of Brian, the husband of one of our volunteers, who has experience in web design and who volunteered to develop the site for us. We can’t thank him enough for the many hours he has spent developing the site.
The site is a very easy to use. If you wish to register as a volunteer simply follow the link to ‘Volunteers’. There is even a separate section for 14-19-year olds. By registering, remember you are not committed to volunteering, however, you will be able to see the many roles that may interest you and then you can decide on whether to apply for any of them.
Alternatively, if you are an organisation wishing to join Volunteer Centre Dacorum, go to the ‘Organisation’ section which has information on membership, how to register, and useful information on how to manage volunteers.
Details of all the services on offer at The Roundhouse can be found under the ‘Services’ tab. These include offering Owl Card Minders on behalf of Neighbourhood Action, replacement Hearing Aid Batteries on behalf of the NHS, photocopying and printing, and eyeglass recycling on behalf of the Lions Club.
Additionally, you can find information on our free Life Coaching with Viviana, and our Knit and Natter group. Details of our very reasonable Room Hire costs are also online - plus you can catch up on all the latest newspaper articles by clicking on the ‘News’ Tab.
We hope you like our website as much as we do and we welcome any feedback you may want to give us, good or bad!
