We have an incredibly rich and diverse voluntary sector in the borough, doing amazing things every day – from sports and physical activity groups, support for health and wellbeing, early years and parents/carers groups, activities for young and older people, initiatives to protect our environment and activities which bring people of different faiths, cultures and beliefs together – these are just a few examples – there’s many more!
Lots of voluntary and community groups in Bury also rely on the incredible contribution made by volunteers – it’s estimated that Bury volunteers give a massive 131,000 hours per week!
