‘Get Involved’ Congleton directory of voluntary groups and organisations


We are delighted to announce that the new ‘Get Involved’ booklet has now been updated and printed. Hard copies are available from the Tourist Information Centre, the Library, The Electric Picture House and at any of the community hubs listed in the book. The Index lists over 100 local voluntary groups, organisations and self help groups, with a summary of their activities and information on how you can access their services or ‘get involved’.

You can view a copy by clicking here

This is a free service devised and delivered by Congleton Community Projects for the Town of Congleton to celebrate and promote volunteering.

We'd like to thank the Lottery Awards4All and Congleton Partnership for funding the printing costs.

Annual events include:
