There are hundreds of community groups and organisations across North Ayrshire all being driven by local people who volunteer to help.

These range from community associations, advice and advocacy agencies, targeted support groups, therapy and wellness organisations, agencies providing public services such as caring for the elderly, to children’s groups, clubs for enthusiasts and hobbyists such as gardening, cooking, reading and chess, knitting bees, historical societies and walking clubs.

What could you do? What are you good at? What do you care about? How can you help your community?

Whatever your choice there is a community group or organisation for you.

You will find a whole raft of information on volunteering and how to become an active member of your community on our partners’ websites-
