  • Voluntary and community sector

    Voluntary and community sector (VCS) organisations are also sometimes known as 'the third sector' or 'civil society organisations' and can vary significantly in size from small local groups, run exclusively by volunteers, to large national charities.

  • Volunteering - countryside

    Durham's countryside is beautiful and varied - from wild moors, wooded dales and sweeping coastline to urban wildlife havens. Volunteer with us and help us to look after our countryside.

  • Volunteering - sport and physical activity

    If you've ever been involved in a local sports club you'll recognise the valuable contribution volunteers make to a club's success. So rather than watching from the sidelines, why not make the most of your time and get involved?

  • Volunteering with the council

    We have a number of volunteering opportunities that you can sign up to and which will help us to improve services across the council.

  • Voting

    The page below outlines the different ways you can cast your vote. You can only vote in elections if your name is on the Register of Electors.
