Development in Social Enterprise are delighted to be working with Worcester Volunteer Centre under the BIG Assist programme.

Over the next few months we will be supporting staff, managers and trustees to find creative and enterprising ways to maximise their ability to provide core services to the voluntary and community sector in Worcester. Established in 1986, volunteering is at the heart of their many services which Worcester people rely on each day.

Worcester Wheels provides community transport for elderly and vulnerable people clocking up 400 single trips every week. Your Helping Hand provides dog walking, shopping and gardening services to enable people to remain safe and independent in their own homes for as long as possible. Their supported volunteering programme Choices has already helped 100 young people by giving them the extra support they need to enjoy the many rewards volunteering can offer. There are also a number of organisational development and business training courses on offer plus local organisations accessing the Creative Partnerships voucher scheme need look no further for marketing and funding consultancy. All these projects and services and more are detailed on the new Worcester Volunteer Centre website.
