Community Volunteering

Are you running event or activities as part of Our Year? Or maybe you have a big project underway, and need some extra helping hands!

As part of the Our Year volunteering programme, we want to help our volunteers connect with community organisations in Wakefield District, and vice versa!

If you want to get involved, read on to find out more. Please note, we can only promote opportunities for groups/organisations who have public liability insurance and a safeguarding policy. If you do not have these things, please contact Nova for guidance:


What you need to do:

If you have an opportunity to share, we would love to hear about it!

Below you will find links to:

It’s up to you whether you would prefer to submit a Word document to or complete our e-form.
