North Devon Voluntary Service (NDVS) Revitalising Volunteer Events June/July 2023

The NDVS is busy planning an exciting Revitalising Volunteer event which has been made possible thanks to National Lottery community funding. This particular event, which is planned for the end of June/early July, is aimed at supporting and interacting with our younger community members – working with them to understand their needs, and the gaps within our communities to fulfil them.

Also they are looking at how volunteering can help younger community members not only with their future career aspirations, with a solid reference and enhanced CV, but also support their mental and perhaps physical fitness.

The NDVS are looking for:

  • Any young people that would like to become part of a forum
  • VCS Groups and relevant organisations interested in attending the event
  • Local venues to hold the event
