Find a Volunteering Opportunity

Our Teignbridge Together platform offers a unique online platform that enables people to be part of the conversations, opportunities, events and social groups in their neighbourhoods; it connects all our communities and helps people become involved.

Since the pandemic began, we have seen a huge groundswell of interest in volunteering and in community groups coming together to make a real difference and effect positive change.

This platform builds on this resurgence, giving people the ability to reach out instantly, make connections with like-minded groups and individuals, get support to start their own campaigns and most importantly, get noticed.
