Linking local volunteers with local needs

Our Story

Syston and District Volunteer Centre, School Street, Syston,  was originally set up in 1977 with the declared aim of providing a range of services to meet the needs of the local community – especially the old, the infirm and the rurally isolated – to recruit and place volunteers, to provide appropriate support, to develop new ideas and opportunities for bringing the community together and to establish close links with other statutory and voluntary organisations who could assist in those tasks.

The Queen’s Service Award

Syston and District Volunteer Centre would like to announce that they have been awarded The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service for 2019. We wish to thank all of our Trustees, Staff and especially our volunteers for all of their hard work and dedication that they have shown.

Syston Volunteer Centre help a lot of people in our area whom are house bound, lonely or retired to get out and about. They have a lot of volunteers to help but could always do with more! If you drive and have a few hours to spare or don’t drive there; are a lot of ways you can make a difference to someones live.

Our partners

We value our partners here at the Volunteer Centre. Overheads and running costs for the Centre are kept to an absolute minimum, with every penny of expenditure very carefully scrutinised.  Donors may therefore be assured that the large majority of any contribution they make will go directly to the provision of much-needed services within our local community.
