Volunteer Centre Sandwell has announced its closure after 42 years of promoting volunteering in Sandwell. The Centre has released the following statement.
It is with regret that Volunteer Centre Sandwell and The Hands On Project ceased to operate on 31st October 2019.
On behalf of staff and trustees we would like to thank all of our volunteers and partner organisations for your help and support over the past 42 years! The decision to close was not taken lightly.
We sincerely wish you all the best for the future.
With regards to the future of volunteering in Sandwell, local charity SCVO is currently developing a new service around volunteering which supports community organisations and charities in Sandwell to promote opportunities that they have for Sandwell residents to help out through volunteering. SCVO will also be launching a volunteer opportunities website in the coming months which will enable would-be volunteers to find the experience they’re looking for from a range of different activities and settings.
