  1. I would like to volunteer in the local area i am only available every other week in the evening as i work full time in accounts. I am open to ideas as to what i could do.


  2. I would like to work for Dudley council either as a Volunteer or full time, I have experience in Supermarket and Gardening + Computers but not in a working environment only at home, I would like some feed back in what you think that I could do.


    • Thank you for your enquiry. We are not part of Dudley Council and there are few roles for volunteers with them unfortunately. At the moment they have roles in an older people’s day centre and a customer service role. Have you looked at the roles we have on the IN YOUR AREA part of our blog? This will give you a better idea of what local roles there are available. There isn’t much for gardening or computers sorry. I am on leave at the moment but if you contact Dale at our office on dale@dudleycvs.org.uk he will be able to either book you an appt to come in for a chat on my return or do a search for you on our database. We will do our best to help you find the perfect role.

      Best wishes

  3. I’ve tried contacting dudleydvs with no luck. My counsellor suggested that I could offer my skills and experience with cooking, budgeting and a few other things to young families maybe. I’d like to hear from you soon.
