The Volunteer Hub

Welcome to The Volunteer Hub!  
We have many exciting volunteer opportunities from various organisations across the Boroughs for you to take part in. 

What is The Volunteer Hub

The Volunteer Hub was developed as a legacy from the fantastic work which is being carried out by our volunteers across the Borough in response to the Hyndburn Hub Covid-19 volunteer recruitment.

Our aim is to provide volunteers easy access to volunteer opportunities across Hyndburn and Ribble Valley from a multitude of community and voluntary organisations, enabling our volunteers the opportunity to make a real difference here in our communities.

The Volunteer Hub  provides volunteers with essential training and the option to continue to develop their knowledge with access to accredited courses. 

Please feel free to browse through our list of opportunities and fill in the application form. 

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us!

Active Lancashire



Designed, operated and delivered by Active Lancashire, The Challenge Through Sport Initiative (CSI) is an innovative behaviour change programme for people in recovery.

The Challenge through Sport Initiative provides much more than a way of getting active. For participants the project is an opportunity to engage in activities within their community and importantly, can allow them to develop a new support network, motivating them to lead a healthier and happier life
