Volunteering in RBWM

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

We are committed to supporting local people to get involved with what matters most to them in their local communities.

Volunteering is a great opportunity to develop new skills or build on existing experience and knowledge. It also offers the chance to give something back to the community or make a difference to the people around you.

We work closely with Community Learning and Skills Service (CLaSS), who lead on volunteering in the Borough by matching volunteers to volunteering opportunities. CLaSS are also jointly commissioned by Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead and Slough Borough Council, to deliver courses for adults (over 19 years old) in Windsor, Maidenhead and Slough.

We have posted below specific volunteering opportunities currently available in the Borough which you may be interested in, please contact the organisation directly to find out more. You can also email classvolunteers@slough.gov.uk if you are looking for a general volunteer opportunity, or you’d like to discuss volunteering further.

If you're an organisation or community group with a volunteering opportunity please post details on the relevant tab below and we may be able to help you find a volunteer.

If you are a new volunteering group please also get in touch with Baljit.
