With the mission to bring volunteers and organisations that need volunteers together, Volunteer Centre Dacorum (VCD) plays a key role in building and strengthening our community.
We support over 500 local organisations, and typically respond to over 1,000 enquiries from potential volunteers each year. VCD works closely with its member organisations as well as with Community Action Dacorum (CAD), Dacorum Borough Council, Volunteering Herts and a range of other organisations concerned with volunteering.
Volunteer organisations which wish to use our services are required to pay a subscription to either Support4Dacorum, which gives you joint membership to Community Action Dacorum (CAD) and Volunteer Centre Dacorum (VCD), or just VCD. Details can be found under Subscriptions in the Organisation tab of the VCD website.
Subscription allows you to add volunteer vacancies to our database, and provides a range of valuable extra support in promoting your volunteer vacancies. You can also use our meeting rooms at special rates and benefit from opportunities to highlight the work of your organisation in the community through newspaper articles and local radio.
We actively encourage all registered organisations to sign up to the Six Point Promise on Volunteer Management, and can provide support and training to help you fulfil this promise.
I do hope that you will want to renew your subscription and membership. A strong charitable and volunteering ethos in a community provides enormous value to Charities, to beneficiaries and to the community as a whole, and renewing your subscription will help your organisation to deliver its charitable purposes, and help us to provide brokerage and other volunteering services in Dacorum.
