Getting involved in the local community is one of the main ways to be active in sharing our city. There are plenty of opportunities to volunteer in Bath! From helping with litter picks to serving at a homelessness shelter, the SCP can help you find the volunteering role you are looking for.
If you have a volunteering opportunity you would like to advertise, contact us and we will spread the word.
