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.

Current opportunities

Children's Code Clubs - Volunteers needed!

Code Clubs for children aged 7 to 13 are now running in Bracknell and Great Hollands libraries and at The Museum of English Rural Life, in Reading University, to give children experience in computer coding. Children first learn to programme computer games and animations using Scratch then have the opportunity to create websites using HTML, CSS and Python. 

We currently need more volunteers to help run our computer coding sessions. If you think that you may be able to assist us you can find more information by visiting Bracknell Forest Libraries, or the Code Club website or The Museum of English Rural Life.
