Through our Thriving Kirklees partnership, we can offer you a range of volunteering opportunities that help support children, young people and their families right across Kirklees.
June 1st to 7th is national Volunteers Week – find out more about what Thriving Kirklees partners are up to celebrate this year.
Every year, over 20 million people across England and the UK volunteer, donating more than 100 million hours to their communities every week.
In the Thriving Kirklees partnership we have around 150 volunteers, who in the past year gave more than 6000 hours of support.
