Volunteers provide crucial services within our community. A large amount of groups, clubs and services would not be able to operate without volunteers. Volunteering can also help with social isolation and will help you feel a sense of achievement and of giving something to your community. Quite often volunteering opportunities will also be social opportunities.
The City and County of Swansea also have a web page dedicated to volunteering.

Clydach Heritage Centre is a small volunteer-run Heritage and Information Centre based in Coedgwilym Park, alongside the Swansea Canal.
We have a timeline of the village and CDs, DVDs and books and leaflets of local interest as well. You may think you don’t know enough to be of help but you would be surprised at how much you know about Clydach; remember, history started yesterday.
Welcoming visitors, making hot drinks and introducing them to the information leaflets we have available, all these things will help.
We open for three hours on both Saturdays and Sundays right through the year. If you could spare just one afternoon a month it would be a great help to us and you may surprise yourself.
