Volunteering

The Berkshire Branch acts as a go-between to put volunteers in touch with local organisations and individuals who need help.

  • If you have computer skills that you are willing to use to support local voluntary organisations and clubs, or elderly or disabled individuals, then please consider putting yourself forward for any of the current opportunities listed below and in our regular Newsletter.

  • If you represent, or know of an organisation that needs help, or have any other suggestions, please email volunteering.berkshire@bcs.org.uk.

The names of volunteers and the individuals or organisations they help are never released, unless all parties want to advertise the volunteering effort as a way of encouraging others to ask for or to offer.
