Welcome to VolFest!

Be it a day, a month or a lifetime commitment, whatever time and energy you can freely give has the potential to change someone’s life. Here at the Centre we firmly believe that community is a work of heart, and that everyone has something to contribute.

We are thrilled to announce that on Thursday 7 June, Centre Supporting Voluntary Action will be celebrating #VolunteersWeek all along Chelmsford High Street.

Over 40 local charities will be coming together to showcase their efforts and promote their services in a festival of all the good that can come of our community working together.

You’ll be able to see first-hand some of the wonderful ways in which charities support our city, and find out how you and your loved ones can access that help.

You’ll also have the chance to learn about all the different opportunities for you to get involved as a volunteer. 

So come down on the 7th and help us celebrate the fact that in Chelmsford every person, and Every Minute Matters.
