The Joys of Volunteering

Thatcham Vision has a number of volunteer Action Groups that are working on the various shorter actions and long term projects contained in the community plan for the town and surrounding areas.

The action groups are: Community Safety, Population Development and Infrastructure, Travel and Transport, Leisure and Culture, Senior Citizens and Childcare and Early Years Learning. There are also a number of other volunteer groups in the 'Vision family' such as Thatcham Sports Network, Lifelong Learning Forum, Thatcham Youth and Edible Thatcham, with more to come.

If you know the topics that most interest you, you can contact the Thatcham Vision Action Group leaders directly on their separate pages on this website.

If you are not sure where you will be most useful, you can make a general enquiry on the ‘contacts page’. Please explain a bit about yourself and what volunteering experience you are looking for. The Vision Project Manager will be delighted to direct you to an area or topic that you can lend a hand with and gain new experiences.
