What does #TeamHerts Volunteering do?

#TeamHerts Volunteering is a newly commissioned serviced by Hertfordshire County Council. The project offers a countywide information portal, so that all residents of Hertfordshire have one place to go to find out about volunteering. There will also be a large emphasis on celebrating volunteering.

The website (www.teamherts.org) is the main feature of the project and will give information about volunteering. Here is an overview of what it provides:

  • Information on what volunteering is and types of roles

  • An open database to search organisations looking for regular volunteers

  • Information and links about flexible/micro volunteering

  • Links to the Time and Talent database and H0urworld app for flexible and micro opportunities

  • News on volunteering in Hertfordshire

  • Case studies and examples of opportunities throughout Hertfordshire

  • Events which #TeamHerts Volunteering are hosting

  • Information around the project

  • Chances to sign up to the monthly e-newsletter and share your story section

Flexible Volunteering

Flexible volunteering is ideal for those who want to volunteer, but have limited time to do so.

The Time and Talents database allows volunteers to browse through and offer help to charities with their ad-hoc volunteering opportunities. It enables those who want to help others, but do not have the ability to commit to voluntary work on a regular basis.

Individuals can advertise their skill sets, and charities advertise their one off opportunities. Together they find each other through the database.

To become a flexible volunteer, you need to go through the following recruitment process.

  • Signing up to the database via this link: http://teamherts.org/volunteer/flexible-volunteering/

  • Giving two referees who can give a character reference

  • Receiving an email from #TeamHerts Volunteering with a handbook which you read, sign and return

  • Have an informal phone chat about the system and how you can use it

Your profile will then be activated and you will be ready volunteer with lots of charities.
