About this cause

About our cause

The South Montgomeryshire Volunteer Bureau was created in 1994 to address the volunteering needs in the area. Being the main organisation for volunteering in the region, our role is to find meaningful and worthwhile volunteer opportunities for community members, and to promote, and advise on, good volunteering practice to other organisations.

Based in Newtown, Powys, we operate throughout the South Montgomeryshire area (the areas covered by the SY15, SY16, SY17 and SY18 postcodes), and are one of 12 Community Support and Volunteer Bureaux supported by PAVO (Powys Association of Voluntary Organisations). Together we form the PCSN (Powys Community Support Network) to provide community support and voluntary services throughout Powys.

Run mainly by volunteers, who have a wide range of volunteering experience, we are always happy to discuss volunteering with potential volunteers.

We also help local organisations with the recruitment, induction and support of volunteers. We work closely with more than 50 organisations, which have a wide range of volunteering opportunities such as administration, counselling, gardening and charity shop work.

We also provide the following support services to the more vulnerable members of our communities:

Powys Befrienders
Community Car Scheme
Helping Hands
Meals on wheels
