Why volunteer with Salisbury Council?

Every person volunteers for different reasons, some of the benefits are

  • You get to meet like-minded people and socialise
  • You can develop and share your skills
  • You get work like experience and a reference
  • You learn more about your local community and local council

And as it is good for your health and wellbeing you also feel good!

Celebrating Volunteers

In December 2013, we celebrate 20 Years of the Justice of the Peace Service in Salisbury. A cocktail function was held in the John Harvey Gallery to celebrate this achievement and we took the opportunity to interview some notaries and volunteers.
