People choose to volunteer for a variety of reasons. For some it offers the chance to give something back to the community or make a difference to the people around them. For others it provides an opportunity to develop new skills or build on existing experience and knowledge.

The Selby District Volunteer Centre is a service run from Community House in Selby, with outreach points of information about volunteering in both Tadcaster and Sherburn in Elmet.  It provides an information and advice service to help individuals find suitable volunteering opportunities and organisations find the right volunteer.
