Building Trafford’s Community Volunteer Network

Person-centred Support for Volunteering

Project Title:

Building Trafford’s Community Volunteer Network

Project Manager:

Project Overview:

Over three years we aim to build the community volunteer network in Trafford through a strategic, coordinated and person-centred approach to volunteering.

Our community hub-based model of volunteer coordination aims to support individuals, families and communities in Trafford through 7 outcomes:

  • Trafford residents will directly benefit from the support of volunteers at Trafford’s Community Hubs
  • Trafford residents find it easier to access volunteer opportunities
  • Marginalised groups will have improved access to relevant volunteer opportunities and employment pathways
  • Improved health & wellbeing of people who volunteer regularly at Community Hubs
  • Volunteers in Trafford feel more valued
  • Trafford will benefit from a strengthened Voluntary, Community, Faith & Social Enterprise (VCFSE) sector
  • A new Volunteer Strategy for Trafford, to be led and developed by the Trafford Community Collective

Volunteer Coordinators in each of the six community hubs across Trafford (below) work together, meet regularly, and monitor progress against the outcomes. We manage the volunteers in our own hub and support residents to find suitable volunteer opportunities either in the hub or elsewhere in our neighbourhood.

We work together with Thrive Trafford, Trafford Council and the Trafford Community Collective to share information and expertise. We help to strengthen and continue to develop local VCFSE partnerships and networks, bringing together local organisations and community groups to collaborate and share resources.
