Volunteers sought for various groups

The following groups have approached us to promote their volunteer vacancies

For Wadebridge and St Austell areas, as part of a new 5 year project to develop information and support hubs within local communities, focusing on hearing loss, deafness and tinnitus.

One of the key aims of the project is to improve connections individuals have with their community through volunteering, so it is a great opportunity for those needing a way of becoming more included in their local community and make their area more hearing loss friendly.
