Govan Volunteer Bank – Give Back & Grow

Govan Volunteer Bank was set up in 2019 as a collaborative approach with a range of voluntary projects and organisations to create and support quality, inclusive and valued volunteering opportunities in Govan.

GVB liaises with partners to establish training needs of volunteers, promoting and coordinating a wide range of training and skills development opportunities that are accessible for local volunteers and residents.

The Govan Volunteer Bank website is a central resource of information for members of the community looking to access volunteer and training opportunities as well as information on community events and services. It’s also a great resource for community groups and partners to promote their services and inform the local community of what’s happening in Govan and how to get involved in accessing services.
