Are you ready to do something amazing?

We are really proud of the many activities, services, and opportunities we offer our young people of Bolton, but we simply would not be able to offer these invaluable activities without our incredible team of volunteers.  Each and every one of our 200+ volunteering team brings with them their own unique set of skills, talents, experiences, and above all, passion, supporting our young people to truly develop their potential.

Make a real difference to young people's lives

We literally could not provide the invaluable services we offer our young people without the support of our amazing volunteers. But it’s also a fun and rewarding opportunity for you too, to give back to the Bolton community, develop new skills, and make a real difference to the lives of our young people.
