A selection of the opportunities available this week through Volunteer Centre Dacorum.

Could you use your skills to make a difference to the lives of young offenders in Hemel Hempstead?

Games for Life is a unique project, designed to improve learning capability and employability through the use of brain training software.

The right volunteer will have good IT skills and experience of the justice system or a background in teaching or psychology.

The project assistant role involves assisting in the use of the NASA- inspired technology, helping individuals to train their own brain and enhance their concentration and memory.

Full training and support is provided and a commitment of at least eight hours a week is required.

Do you have an interest in fashion and want to develop and use it in a happy and thriving environment?

Rennie Grove Hospice Care has an exciting new opportunity for a retail and trading assistant at their town centre warehouse in Tring.

You’ll be part of a new group who select and prepare donated clothing and other items so they are ready for distribution and display at one of the charity’s chain of fundraising shops.

If you have energy and enthusiasm and are able to be on your feet for a couple of hours at a time, this could be the role for you!

This home grown charity also needs volunteers with good IT skills to help in their virtual charity shop on eBay.

Duties involve listing items on eBay and sometimes doing some research on the internet.

You should have good communication skills and be able to help out for at least half a day per week. Knowledge of eBay and/or collectables would be a bonus.

All money raised at Iain Rennie and Rennie Grove charity shops helps to pay for specialist services and support at home for patients living with life-limiting illnesses and their families.

As well as helping other organisations keep their activities on the road, Community Action Dacorum uses its fleet of minibuses to run its shopping projects for elderly people who are unable to use public transport. More volunteer drivers are needed – you’ll need a clean licence that includes category D1.
