Volunteering Opportunities

Baildon Town Council relies on the support and dedication of volunteers. They add value to the organisation, bringing in a wider mix of ages and cultures, new skills, and experience and enthusiasm.

We're currently recruiting volunteers to work in Baildon Hybrid Library and Bracken Hall Countryside Centre. Click here for role descriptions.

People Can Volunteering Quality Standard Award

In February 2023 Baildon Town Council was awarded the People Can Volunteering Quality Standard Award by Community Action Bradford and District (CABAD) which recognises good practice in the management of our library volunteers.

They said:

"Your evidence met, and in some areas, exceeded the assessment criteria, which is a credit to the way your organisation values and manages its volunteers."

The award is valid for 3 years (from February 2023 until 31st December 2025) after which it can hopefully be renewed.
