Get Involved

Get involved in your community and make a real difference to the lives of people on your doorstep. Community and voluntary organisations across Chelmsford can’t provide their vital services without your support.

There are a huge variety of fundraising and volunteering opportunities across Chelmsford. From preparing a community group's garden ready for planting vegetables, litter picking, laying a new path leading to a community garden, through to taking part in a supermarket bag pack. You can become a valued part of our team for as little (one hour) and as regular as you like.

Small Actions + People Power = Big Change

Taking part in a small action for Chelmsford 4 Good can be really rewarding. You will have plenty of fun, meet new people and feel a real sense of pride. Here’s what local people think about volunteering:

  • One of our volunteers after helping at an event said: ‘‘I enjoyed the day very much, being able to get involved behind the scenes and seeing inside the Council Chamber. The best bit was being in that room knowing that all of us as people and organisations are here to care.’’ 
  • Another reported: "Volunteering has helped me to develop new skills and improve my confidence through trying new things and meeting new people."
  • Another commented: "There’s always been a welcoming smile and always plenty of varied tasks to complete for various charities and individuals needing help and support. Sometimes daunting, sometimes hard work, but in the end there’s always something to take away with you - the feel good factor!’’
