Volunteer in Frome

Volunteers on the staircase at Frome Town Hall with Mayor Philip Campagna

Our volunteers

Volunteers give their time for free in many different ways; as carers, in school parents’ associations, sports and club leaders, in the town’s two voluntary-run theatres, with the many dance and arts providers, as local town and district Councillors, looking after open spaces, fundraising, and support of many other local charities and organisations, to name but a few. Cllr Mark Dorrington said:

“Frome’s charities and voluntary groups are always in need of generous, talented people to join them. Could you help them make a difference? Whether you have an occasional couple of hours to spare, or a professional/personal track record that gives you a useful perspective as a trustee or director, you’re very much needed and valued – and every contribution counts. ” 

Become an Energy Advice Champion

Could you commit a few hours a week or month and would like to make a difference to people’s lives, reducing their energy bills and their carbon footprint? Frome Town Council are looking for Energy Advice Champions to support the expanding Healthy Homes project.

You’ll be a part of a friendly and supportive team, providing energy advice to groups and individuals with initiatives such as regular drop-in energy sessions, pop-up events and home visits.

Full training will be provided by the Centre of Sustainable Energy and hours of volunteering can be flexible.

If you are interested or would like more information, please contact Caroline Wajsblum: cwajsblum@frometowncouncil.gov.uk or 07597 700837.
