Poynton Town Council recognise that some residents are keen to give something back to their community. During the Covid-19 pandemic, Poynton Town Council co-ordinated a volunteer response which supported our most vulnerable residents, by offering support, collecting prescriptions and organising shopping. Poynton’s Street Champions supported their elderly and vulnerable neighbours.

Volunteering opportunities in the town are periodically offered by local groups and organisations.

The most recent opportunities are listed below. Please contact the individual groups/organisations directly if you are interested in helping.

If you run a local group or organisation and would like to advertise a local volunteering opportunity, we can help you spread the word. Please complete the form below, giving details of the opportunity on offer.
