South Northamptonshire Volunteer Bureau
snvb ( originally known as South Northants Volunteer Bureau) works across the whole district of South Northamptonshire which lies to the south west of Northampton and has a population of around 85,000. The M1 motorway, A5 and A43 trunk roads and the main London to Glasgow railway cross its area.
The historic towns of Brackley, in the west, and Towcester, in the centre of the district are the main centres of population. However, the majority (72%) of South Northamptonshire's residents live in its many villages.
snvb is a company limited by guarantee (no. 5068116) and a registered charity (no.1104848). We are a quality accredited member of Volunteering England and a member of the Northamptonshire Forum of Volunteer Bureaux and the Local Strategic Partnership.
They work with volunteers and local voluntary groups on a day to day basis. They place and support volunteers and offer support to organisations which use volunteers. Organisations turn to them when they need volunteers or want advice or help with managing and developing their activities.
They are the local administrators for the national volunteering database at www.do-it.org.uk which advertises over 200 local volunteering opportunities.
