We all rely upon willing volunteers from time to time – to help us in our day to day lives, in running special interest groups, in pursuing sports and leisure activities and in handling matters that affect our local community. The StowVolunteers initiative seeks to encourage more people to participate in volunteering by helping local groups to attract volunteers and by helping to place volunteers in interesting roles.

Stowmarket Town Council and Anglian Water are providing financial support towards StowVolunteers which will include free advertising and training to support the development of volunteering in the town.

Currently, we are consulting local groups about their need for volunteers – we want to know what they do, what volunteers they are seeking and most importantly, how we can help them in the future? You can take part in our consultation here!
