The Volunteer Centre, Chesterfield & North East Derbyshire, is a local volunteering development agency working independently to support organisations from the voluntary, community and public sectors.
In our core work we promote, support and develop volunteering and aim to make a positive impact on the quality of the volunteering experience for individual volunteers and the organisations that work with them.

As you may know, we are running a grocery delivery service to help the housebound and shielded during this period of COVID infection. As some of our volunteers have now had to return to work, we urgently require new volunteers to help us out. If you are able to get involved PLEASE do contact us as soon as possible. Thanks. 



The images you’ll see on the website below, are all the original work of Derbyshire photographers & artists. Proceeds go to the projects and activities of The Volunteer Centre – Chesterfield & NE Derbyshire. We’ve teamed up with mks:creative to build this web store and items start at just a £1.00. We’re adding new work all the time, so why not head over there now and see what takes your fancy?



Just to alert you to a scam email which landed this morning. Starts with an email claiming to be from the DVLA and asking you to update your details as they don’t match your driving licence. You can actually just bin that and forget it. Just for the record, if you click through, you see a reasonably convincing Gov’t page asking for your details. This, of course, is a fake too and you must close this and never return. Any queries, just let us know on 01246 276 777


So here’s the thing. As the lockdown is released, many of our wonderful volunteers are having to return to work. Perfectly understandable, but we really need to replace them. If you can help with our shopping and delivery service in any way, PLEASE let us know asap. Thanks.

And they said…

Probably the most rewarding thing about running our shopping and delivery service throughout the COVID-19 crisis, has been the heartfelt thanks and appreciation we have received from the people who have benefitted. This has been so gratifying, in fact, that we’ve compiled many of the kind words we’ve received. Please read them here…
