Thu.31.Mar.2011 - 14:30 BST

Have you ever wanted to give something back to your community by volunteering but didn’t know where to start? Or have you always thought that you don’t have the time, qualifications, or expertise required to actually be of help?

The truth is everyone has the ability to make a positive contribution to their community through volunteering. While volunteers who give up their time to head to foreign countries in need are quite rightly celebrated, there are also plenty of valuable and worthwhile projects closer to home that need your help too which you can contribute to at a time and place that suits you.

So to help you get started join our live webTV show where Andrea Rannard from Volunteering England will you give the lowdown on who could benefit from your help and how you can get involved. She’ll be joined by Helen Davies from Orange, who will be talking about how technology can help make volunteering easier.

Andrea Rannard from Volunteering England and Helen Davies from Orange join us live online at on Thursday 31st March at 2:30pm to offer the best advice to anxious mums and dads.
