The Christmas holidays for many in our community can often be particularly difficult, especially for those who experience or are at risk of isolation and a sense of loneliness. Volunteering is a great way to connect with your local community and provide a social environment for both like-minded fellow volunteers and beneficiaries, whilst providing a sense of reward and satisfaction in helping to contribute and connect with your community.
For organisations, particularly those whose beneficiaries find the winter months especially challenging, extra help in service provision or to deliver one off events can be crucial.
If you’re wanting to volunteer locally this Christmas, and beyond, visit our online Volunteer Centre volunteer opportunities today or call Brighton & Hove: 01273 234023, Adur & Worthing: 01903 207735.
Interest in volunteering is especially high over the festive period, with members of the public wanting to donate their time and help to assist local organisations, projects and charities. So, our volunteer centres have received a large amount of enquiries regarding Christmas volunteering and we’d love to help them help you!

We also encourage community organisations to use this time to promote their fund raising campaigns.
It’s always worth thinking about maximising the benefits of the increased interest in local volunteering by planning your Christmas volunteering opportunities as early as possible, as well as your volunteering schedule for the year ahead. Capturing this spirit of good will and providing Christmas volunteering opportunities is a fantastic way to engage people into longer term volunteering throughout the year.
Merry Christmas from all at Community Works!
