We are Cheshire East

Volunteering made easy across Cheshire East

Our story

Through the People Helping People service, which was set up in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, an abundance of volunteers responded to the needs of our communities by supporting much needed community-based activities that enabled local vulnerable residents to remain safe and well.

1 year later valuing this experience we are committed to building upon this kindness in our towns and streets. We have developed a volunteer offer which includes an easy one step recruitment process, pathways to access training and support, that also provides a space dedicated to celebrating volunteer achievements, all accessed here via this website.

Arriving here at We Are Cheshire East we are proud to stand out from the crowd making it easy for you to volunteer your way.

We are Cheshire East is volunteer led, working in partnership with support from Cheshire East Council and its long term partner the Social Action Partnership which is dedicated to providing support for volunteers and VCFSE sector organisations in Cheshire East.
