Following the success of the trial of the Volunteer Centre in Wellington Library earlier this year, the voluntary sector development charity Engage will be starting monthly sessions from July 2016.
The sessions are open to members of the public who can go and find volunteering opportunities in their area.
Any organisation in the Taunton Deane area which would like help and support with issues such as volunteer recruitment, funding advice and how to become a charity can contact Engage.
