Community Wellbeing Service

The Community Wellbeing Service – Stroud and Berkeley Vale is a free, confidential service for anyone over 16yrs. The aim of the service is to connect people to local organisations and groups that can help improve general wellbeing and meet wider social needs.

We have a number of volunteer roles, including befriending, administration, transport, group organisers, welcomers, activity facilitators and much more. We provide training, support and a dedicated Volunteer Co-Ordinator to ensure you are fully supported every step of the way.

We hold regular Volunteer Coffee Mornings for existing and interested volunteers. Why not pop along to our next meeting: Thursday 4th April 2019 from 10am – 11.30am @ Independence Trust Offices, 1st Floor, The Cross, Parliament Street, Stroud, GL5 2HL.
