Welcome to Trøgstad volunteer centre!
Would you like to spend some of your time with others?
Do you want to meet new peole?
Do you have some ideas you would like to realise?
Frivilligsentralen (The Volunteer centre) is a meeting place. We connect people in the community together. Some need help and others wish to help.
The joy of helping others is the payment you get! Help received from the volunteer centre is free of charge.
We are only limited by our imagination!
