Helping people, building community, changing lives!

Chip In is a place- based project which aims to engage and mentor young people aged 16-30 in volunteer opportunities across Blackburn with Darwen's arts, culture, sport, heritage and environment sectors over the next two years. The Project aims to break down barriers which young people face in volunteering, bring together opportunities and build skills, confidence and community.

The Bureau Centre for the Arts is among over 160 organisations across arts, culture, sport, civil society, youth, and heritage sectors to benefit from the £4.6 million Volunteering Futures Fund.

Chip In (formerly Volunteering Now) is our two year volunteer partnership programme for young people aged 16-30. We have teamed up with a range of local partners in the borough to provide opportunities for volunteering in a range of areas such as events, music, project development, admin, exhibition invigilation, workshop support, stewarding, curation, collection handling, supporting youth sessions, social media and blogging, food growing and much more!

These opportunities, along with our mentoring can provide you with essential experiences, the opportunity to learn new skills, meet new people, build confidence and enrich yourself and your community.
