About Us

Pershore & District Voluntary Help Centre, known as Pershore Volunteer Centre, was established in August 1984 and became a registered charity in January 1985. The Board of Trustees is responsible for the management of the charity and has delegated the day to day running to a Centre Manager.

The Aims of the Centre are essentially to provide a central point where anyone wishing to do voluntary work may register, and anyone needing help or advice may be directed to the appropriate agency.

In practice, the activities we undertake to achieve our aims are wide-ranging and include:
  • Recruitment and placement of volunteers by providing a Centre where persons wishing to do voluntary work can register and people needing help or advice can be assisted or directed to the appropriate agency  
  • Liaison with statutory and voluntary organisations to identify and address needs in the area  
  • Linking needs to existing resources where possible, and establishing new facilities as and when required  
  • Providing a Community Transport Service including a Social Car Scheme for those without a vehicle or unable to use public transport and an accessible Minibus Service for use by the elderly, disabled and local voluntary and community organisations  
  • Providing and/or supporting other appropriate community services  
  • Supporting a Resource Centre, to be used by others for printing, duplicating, etc.
