Support Us

Volunteer with us 

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with The Bridge - together, we can make a difference!

The Bridge and Charnwood Citizens Advice Bureau are lead agencies for a project called Charnwood Connect. Charnwood Connect was funded by the Big Lottery Fund to increase capacity and build resilience into social welfare advice provision across the Borough of Charnwood. Other key partners include Living Without Abuse, Youth Shelter, Human Rights & Equalities Charnwood, Loughborough University, PACE, John Storer Charnwood and Charnwood Borough Council.

We are looking for people who can volunteer for a few hours each week and be part of a team providing services to help people who are vulnerably housed or at risk of homelessness. We have a number of roles with The Bridge and with other partner agencies (see above). Some roles involve working directly with clients e.g. providing advice, reception and information services. Other opportunities involve providing essential support such as administration, fundraising and organising donations.

If you would like to undertake a more strategic role within the organisation and have skills, knowledge and experience which could help us to drive the organisation forward and support the achevement of our 5 year strategy, you might be interested in becoming a Trustee.
